On my way to work I saw a red MR2 on fire on 880. :boom: The fire truck was not even there yet, only one CHP motorcycle. Looked like couple of young asian guys driving the car, and it looked lowered. Anyone on the board? Poor MR2 had at least 10 foot high flames

Glad you walked away from it. Sorry about the car. Do you know what was the cause?

Dude... Im sorry you had that happen to you........ I was in the same shoes a while back. watching , helpless, I was able to use a 2lt bottle of mt. dew to put my fire out after using my hands, I would burn my hands before watching this car die..... mine started with the starter wire to battery. it took the whole harness out, battery almost got the fuel lines..... I used my hands to stop that!

Glad you are safe......

Everyone else, Check your fuel injector O-rings. The new gas out there eats rubber,,,

man , thats sucks .... Sorry for your loss. maybe from your experience I will be more cautious and carrry a fireextinguisher in my car just in case. Right now I carry a fix-aflat, a AAA 39peice road kit and a 4$ 40peice socket wrench for emergencies.

Btw will Sierra Mist work? or Dentyne Ice? it works in the commercials =)..

Thanks crazy btw.
Is your insurane covering it? or total loss?

Things like this shouldn't happen to good people but somehow those darn gremlins get in there. Man, you've learned so much from buildling that car. No regrets! I know a guy like you will come back stronger than before. Best wishes to you.
