the s2k met it's match today :(



went to my BFF's parents' house for a kBBQ for labor day. got legitimately stuck on the gate. was really worried i would need to get towed off, and their tractor was inside the gate...

got lucky after pulling some weight out of the car and having some friends push back while i floored it in reverse.

NEMESISSSSSSSSSSS!!!!

I am confused about happened. you mean your car got stuck on that little bump that the gate rides on?

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Thanks for posting that, I am sure a lot more embarrassing things have happened to others that they have omitted.

it is a little hard to tell, but the dirt right up before the gate's triangular rail dips down... about 8-10 inches in front of the rail it's dug out.

so as soon as my tires got to that point and the whole car dipped down, the gate rail started scraping on the frame rails, which happens sometimes on huge speed bumps and is no big deal as long as i go slow. last year for labor day this is exactly what happened, i made it over with some noise, no big deal.

it's washed out more though and i'm scraping along and all of a sudden the car stops and the wheels start spinning.

I see. That makes sense. On the plus side your car does look good and I like your plate.
