Burn to a crisp, yellow neon curse.. Kyra is DEAD.

Post by Neon4Life » Thu Jul 14, 2011 10:02 pm

Kyra is officially dead, im seriously like depressed rite now beacuse i spent so much time and swet into making the car what it was not to mention i spent all my spare time into the engine swap the past 2 months and all for what.. o yeah for it to burn into a pancake pretty much. What happened was i guess i had a oil leak and then it caught fire, This was rite as i was getting to work so i quickly park as i knew something was wrong then pop the hood and seen a fire by the turbo, i immediately went crazy and next thing you know the fire department desides to show up like 25minutes too late and the entire thing was burnt down to hell. I dont know what im going to do at the moment about a car, i think im getting out of the modification world all together and just getting a plane jane car from now on. Doubt theres even talk about a srt4 in the future as insurance would suck balls for me. the only thing salvageable would be the wheels, tail lights, trunk, the rear coilovers, sway bar, i dont know about the front coilovers just yet, the CX racing intercooler did survive tho.. & not to mention i have sitting here my new 58% shifter and a new full exhaust. i guess theres nothing more to say but life sucks and all my work has gone down the drain.. The End.

Well, you fulfilled the name of the club!

That's pretty crazy. Definitely happy I keep a fire extinguisher on the passenger floorboard.

Nearly had that happen on my friends passat, shitty vw coil plug shorted out and lit up like a candle. Once you open the hood and all the oxygen hits that fire, it's a matter of seconds before it's done, especially with a fluid fire.

We spend so much money buying parts, and spending time installing them.
Maybe 'investing' in a fire extinguisher, too, wouldn't be such a bad idea.

So sorry to read about this.
Good to know, that nothing else happened and it seems that no one was injured.

I think, there is no need for a fire distinguisher at all.
You can forget about the capacity of them usually.
And there is no need for lots of mods to get your car burning.
Had a nearly stock Mitsubishi years ago which caught fire by a short while driving.


First time that I was the 1st in a jam on the autobahn :lol:

There I got a distinguisher from somebody else but it helped nothing.
Firefighters needed about half an hour to arrive, meanwhile the car burned out totally. I learned - cars do not explode at once :lol: and insurance paid a reasonable amount of money.

Sorry man.......I hope you don't get away from the modding scene......don't let this get you down..If you need to take a break for a bit do it.

I'm saving this pic for all the people who laughed at me for carrying around fire extinguishers in all my cars.
