Ur car will need a 4 wheel allignment to correct any damage and i will bet u a million bucks that when u get the rims balanced that u will find they are probably buckled to the point where u cant correct with a counterweight anymore and will shudder at speed from now on.
From the pics it looks like u were hard on the gas when that rear tyre was grinding the curb out, Looks like u were punishing ur car rather than throwing round a few corners, are u sure u know what u are doing?

Ye I admit I've smashed my old car before, hit a slippery when wet sign in the wet LOL. Learnt my lesson that day! But the thing that had me worried is when you said you hit a gutter 'again' and then saying you can drive, those things don't just jump out at you in the middle of the road LOL :P

s**t happens man. by the way looks like u got off lightly, my mate just recently smaked a gutter at 60km. diff locked up spun us into a big 360 smashed the lip of his 17s bent the axle to some extremly wrong angle. the force of the impact snapped the watts linkage where it bolts onto the diff cover plate (not the bolt the actual plate) an we got it home somehow.

lol if i had billys and drinks i think i would have been dead lol
f**k hell dude that would of cost a bit yeah im lucky i didnt over steer it the other way and smacked into the other gutter
anys ways it looks like the onlt things i need to get it all fixed up now is get the steering rack tightend because the bolts loose and get new bushes and ball joints and for some odd reason my power steering pump is working better not as much shuttering its like i had a air bubble in the lines and the force of the impact got rid of it with a bit of oil so it seems my power steering os working better
weired i know

I guess the lesson here mate is that the street isnt the place to go fanging. theres very little room for error, and in that small margin, where a small loss of control can mean life changing consequences. You got off easy this time. Next time, cops could get ya, you loose your car etc. worse someone could get injured. worse still killed. At the end of the day we all sorta figure out its not worth the risk, or the money.

repeatedly banging gutters for 2 years is no means to spruik being able to drive. In fact if I were trying to prove to my peers that I can drive I would be omitting that particular point as you kinda shot yourself in the foot. Being able to drive is about not hitting the gutters if that makes sense :)

Take it out on track- they are available. at least thats what its designed for. I know we were all 17 once, but these are the words that you need to hear. It could save a lot of trouble.

exactly dude i know what you mean like what i was doing was stupid and not driving, there for i dont know how to drive because if i did i wouldn't of done what i did on the street any ways i would of put my indicator on and took it sensibly look most use blokes would do
and like you said if i did it on the track its alot more safer even if i do that s**t in a car park or industrial area were theres heaps of room
but any ways i belive every thing happens for a reason like if i never smacked into the gutter i wouldnt of gone to pedders and got a check up meaning i wouldnt of knowen my steering rack was loose and my ball joints and bushes were execcavily worne so i could of done damage if i went over a pot hole at speeds
