So I'm driving home tonight on the Van Wyk Expressway south and a red debadged E36 coupe....with California tags (4XU...) pulls up besides me whiles going 50 mph...so I swore it was Deloriant or Speed Infusion...it was the same rims they got, same bright ass red, M3 bumper & Mirrors and debadged...He (white kid with dark hair) winds his black-tinted windows down and looks over at me as if he knew me then sped off...

Of course I went after him...going around dump trucks and semi tractor trailers at like 80-90 mph...
he was fast...real fast...when we get to the Jackie Robinson Hway ramps he exits in front of me and I follow at like 70 mph.

The exit has some rough bumps before you get onto the Jackie and then it's all twisties all the way down for like 7 miles. Anyway as we go over crazy bumps and holes way too fast and I brake hard to keep control

Next thing I know my rear wheels start slipping side to side and my entire rear wheel wells sounds like the bumper is dragging and clanging against the ground(like metal chains)...it was freaking loud and metallic like metal clanging on metal...so I slow down and drive at 30-40 mph all the way home.

Anyway I lost the red E36 in the twistes and my car had no stability or bounce.

I need new shocks ASAP or something, new rear suspension perhaps in the morning...
that is it.

But do you think I could have damaged anything else?

Deloriant...why? why me?

Deloriant is an unknown quantity at this point

Uhhhh... Not to sound like a prick or anything, but... Why haven't you looked under your car yet? And why didn't you stop as soon as possible to check it out? I know if that happened to me, I would have stopped as soon as humanly possible and crawled under my car to see what broke. And yes, it sounds like you have more of a problem than just shocks. Maybe control arms broke? The stock ones aren't that sturdy.

I couldn't pull over on the Jackie. It was dark and the hway is composed of two narrow ass lanes wrapped around the hills between Brooklyn and Queens no shoulders...
As soon as I got home I went under as best as I could but it's dark, and evrything was still hot...anyway I only checked to make sure nothing was hanging off or dragging...
I take my car to the mechanic in the morning and see what we find...
mind you this is the 3rd time we've checked....
