Brian, Doug- Yes, reminds me of Sir Stirling testifying for GM about the Corvair. When asked which he preferred, understeer or oversteer when he lost control, he said if he had lost control, it did not make much difference. Sounds like the CGT bit them and, like Brian said, 50 mph into a stanchion and then a tree makes for a very sudden, very high g stop. Plus a fire/explosion immediately upon impact.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.
