Drifting accident goes right thanks to cheap knock-off parts

Posted Jan 11th 2013 7:15PM


Putting cheap knock-off parts on your car is never a good idea, except in the case of this drift demo gone wrong. What starts out as rookie tire smoking antics suddenly turns into parking lot terror when a female volunteer (asked to stand between both drift cars doing donuts) is unexpectedly struck and clipped by the rear spoiler of the black Toyota Supra.

Thankfully, the cheap fibreglass wing snaps off the hatchback and goes flying into the air, as the shocked girl realizes how close she came to getting seriously hurt and / or dragged behind the car. If the aftermarket wing had in fact been made of higher quality carbon fibre and properly secured, the results would have been very ugly to say the least. Rather than get sliced 'n' diced, the young lady walked away with only bruising.
