So around 550 am I was driving to work on the 105 east bound. Here in California it was raining my koup found the only puddle in that freewY and i lost control hit the wall twice with the front end hit the back bumper once. The cat actually held up really good. Now I miss my koup and it's only been gone for 12 hours. Got a dodge challenger as a rental but to tell you guys the true I want my koup. :(

Fun car everyone turns there heads to look but I liked the look they gave me when they saw my koup and had the confused look on there face lol. But yea the challenger it's nice but it's a six cylinder and there is not power but besides that nice car. Next week thinking of going to change the challenger and getting the CTS V Cadillac they have there

It helped get my traction back after I finished hitting the wall. But it usually helps to keep the car going in the right direction. But the worse part I am usually doing 85 or 90 mph on that freeway today I was doing 50 because of the rain.

Should they change the tires? I mean, honestly, no reason to lose control. Defective tires could do it though...
