Given the title of the thread, you had to know that would end badly...right up there with The Fast and the Furious Prius and Ape Hangers at Laguna Seca.

It wasn't NEARLY as bad as I expected, and when a guy's calling himself a "dick-head" for what he did then I guess there's nothing I can add, except that he was VERY lucky!

When he went over in that big puddle, I thought I heard his engine ingesting water.
