This is my story of being a kid and stuck and dumb all at once. Well if any one knows Columbus GA flatrock is the place to take your trucks and mess around if you just want a little fun. I have made it through everything in Flat rock before so i was like lets go back up there, it has just rained yesterday. Well I go past a "puddle" as i like to call it and turn around to go through it. :doh0715: I went in the shallow end first which sucked because i ended up getting stuck in the deep end. Water rushed in my car its 12 at night, illegal to be up there and all that. So my friend gets my car out. We get my car running and he leaves, my car just dies.:banghead His phone was dead so couldnt call him back. So me and my friend are stuck at a park till 6:30 in the morning in freezing cold. Turns out it was just my starter was wet and it needed to be beat up for being lazy. But this story is to help other teenagers who cars are pretty much stock and are like yea lets go wheel.... Always have something to keep valuables dry , bring a nice set of tool, maybe extra set of clothes, fluids for everything, and if its your daily driver just dont take it through anything that might get you stuck. Other than that i had a great time. :twotu:

Actually I think the more valuable lesson is to check the water depth first

yea i agree on that, i just got done checking everything on my truck, i know transmission is phucked(i got a warrenty though), i get to drive my car like a manual now lol. 1 to 2 to drive to overdrive. Front right tire squeaks so probaly brake related or something. and the interior toook 3 hours to clean and still drying. im just glad cops didnt come up there, its a park where people wheel but its illegal. which i dont understand its just a little fun.

If it is illegal stay out of it!!

read on alot of the threads around here about illegal wheeling and you will get the idea that most of us will cut your nuts off if we saw it happening!

So STAY THE FUK OUT OF PROPERTY THAT IS NOT YOURS OR YOU HAVE NOT BEEN GIVEN PREMISSION TO DRIVE ON!!!

mullet boy, seriously, if you have a retarded ass story like that where what you were doing was illeagal, dont post it here. you will just be made fun of and people will bash you for itand its not a good first impression. the last guy who posted a story like this, david( fsb admin) threatened to kick him to the curb( see link above) if he did something like that and posted it again.

Hey buddy, let me get this straight... you wheel illegally (knowingly), trash your truck, figure you could just BS your way through the warenty??? Sorry to tell ya buddy but If you take it to a qualified shop, they will be able to tell what you did, and just charge you out your new butt hole everyone is gunna rip you. :lowblow

Then don't make one other mistake and take it to the shop to get the tranny fixed and BS your way into getting it replaced, because that is stealing, even if it is your dad's friends shop. Don't make us start calling you a thief.
