Today, my brother died in a car crash. He hit a light post and flipped into a ditch. He was turning and the Goat lost control hit the post and flipped right into the ditch. Cops said he died on impact. Well, now him and the Goat are in they're eternal resting place. He was 20 years old...

Some info at http://www.nbc-2.com/articles/readarticle.asp?articleid=9994&z=3&p=

Our family asked to keep all other infomation private.

EDIT: Here is the story TRUE:
He was driving from school to work, and the car's rear tire grazed the median causing the car to fishtail. He was going 27 miles an hour, but the car got sideways it became slightly airborne, and the car then slammed into a pole directly on the driver's door. The medical examiner said he died immediately, and painlessly of extreme head trauma.

Pics are on page 4.

Actually, the GTO was his until Sept 4th when he got the Evo. So probably the tranny locked up(its does that since predator tune) and the car just spun. We are going to get a full report of what happened tommorow.

And again, thanks for your support.

What do you mean by locked up? That could be a big safety issue with the Predator. Again im sorry for your loss.
