Friend did a skateboard grind with my 5.0 today -__-

Okay so here's what happened. I let my friend drive my car so I could hear how it sounded from someone else's POV. Well he messed up and didn't see a lane divider while doing a left hand turn and grinded on the divider. No wheels took a hit. Sparks did fly everywhere. I was so pissed. Here's the only things I could find wrong:

Right frame is scratched
Right and left relo bracket is deburred
H pipe on the right side has some scratches but no dents in the exhaust.
And pretty much that's it. Slight scratches to some plastic underbody material but looks like the oil pan is untouched. Anything else of major concern? Only wheel that barely hit it was the right rear wheel.

Even though it doesn't look bad, my day and week feel ruined. So pissed. Should I take anything in for checking?

I'd take it in just for peace of mind. Even though it looks like nothing but scratches and what not.

Sorry bud. Mine isn't loud anymore but that is why I never let anyone drive my car. Not even the tire shop. Not even the oil change people. I don't even feel comfortable driving something that isn't mine.

It looks like you got lucky.

So you let your friend drive your car so I could hear how it sounded from someone else's POV.

Well you have the photos attached, where are the sound files of it located at?

If you didn't record them, perhaps you could let your friend drive it again and record them this time?

The photos were taken on my phone. The videos are taken in my GoPro4. I'd have to download through YouTube after editing them in premiere. Takes a lil bit of time

My buddies all have a simple thought process and that is if one of us drives another's car that if we mess it up we fix it.

Well played sir. Just some scratches where it won't be noticed. You choose option one there which was be a good friend. Option two would have involved changing your name to Richard and having it shortened.

Hell if you don't want to just email me the file, i'll edit and upload it lol.


Overall it does look like only cosmetics though. I know someone that did that before and was nowhere near as lucky. If your car was a bit lower to the ground it could have done damage.

It is low to the ground. About a couple inches or so it just so happen the divider wasn't too big. But I'm uploading it now. I'll probably post tomorrow. You can see all the Sparks that came out as the go pro was facing the front o gt he car but you'll see a few on the front drivers side

That divider must not have been too big if your friend couldn't see it.
He/she must feel like crap.
I'd be looking at the the differential but from the description it doesn't sound like any damage was done. Check the wear pattern on your tires and check it again in a couple thousand miles to see if there's any irregular wear. Bushings on the LCA's since it looks like they took a hit.

I'd be removing the LCAs to check them, and asking your friend to spring for new relo brackets and a just-in-case alignment. If I was the driver I would feel like a fool and have no problem with that request.
I'd also hit the bare metal on the scratches with some paint or something to prevent rust.

Do your realize how St*pid that sounds?

What's next? Have someone drive your car into a guard rail at 70 mph, to hear what that sounds like?

Car sounds different between inside and outside. Why does that sound stupid that he wanted to hear what it sounds like from the outside? I'm sure any person letting another borrow, test drive, whatever their car is NOT granting a free for all trash the car type of ride. The right thing to do for anyone is pay for their mistake. It's ultimately between the op and his friend (friendship covers a lot of ground and there are various friendships) to decide. Now if op said lets see what this can do off road...different story.

If I was the friend that was driving I would have offered immediately to make any damage right. I would ask him to have it checked out and give me the bill. That's what friends do. If he doesn't want to make his friend pay - that is his right. So ultimately I would have it checked out just to be sure and the rest is up to the two of them. Just my 2 cents.

How about we stop worrying about his friend paying for the minimal damage if any and start demanding to be entertained by the video!

Lol.
I agree. It sounds like the OP asked his friend to do him a favor by driving the car so that he could hear what the exhaust sounds like. His friend obliged.

This is one of the reasons to carry "full coverage" insurance... You can let anyone drive your car, regardless of their experience or skill level, and any damage that occurs will be covered.

Friend did a skateboard grind with my 5.0 today -__-

Insurance covers minus deductible.

Yeah, if the friend asked to borrow the car then he's obligated to fix it. Since the OP asked the friend to do him a favor then the bill is 100% on the OP for choosing a totally incompetent blind azz driver. I think the Good Samaritan Law applies here. Lol

Worse case scenario you're out $250-500 for deductible

You should probably get a lower deductible if you are going to continue associating with your current friends.

If the car still drives exactly the same as it did before this incident occurred, and there are no new creaking or squeaking noises, it will probably be fine.

My deductible is $1000 also... The rates raise significantly for a lower deductible. F'n insurance companies are a scam anyway but a necessary evil I guess.

My 2 Cents

The driving friend should offer to pay for the damage and the owner friend should thank him but refuse the offer.

but accept a free lunch

forgot to mention there is a difference in accident types...ie having someone pull in front of you, hitting a parked police car, or hitting a curb which is somewhere in the middle.
