    Looks like a setup up to me.

    He has hardly touched the lamp post at any speed and there are no brake marks on the grass :/

    yeah, but as has been said on the link, if your suddenly flying through the air in a Evo after sitting in the showroom the last thing your gonna think about is "wheres the brakes" id be thinking more of "MUMMY!! HELP!!!"

    That is true but where's the damage to the front of the car then? It looks like it rolled into it at about 10mph.

    Hmm, don't know with that really. Damage is mainly superficial, no major damage. Plus its one hell of a big post, so probs would have done a fair bit of damage with a speed collision. Very strange!

    What scares me is they keep on talking about the "emergency brake" I can only assume they're talking about the handbrake there.... last thing I'd think of yoinking on in an emergency... and if they had proper gearboxes/lighter cars over there they wouldn't roll in gear, unless he's talking utter carp. (which i think is highly possible)

    hmmm surely they only went like 10-15ft, even in an evo you ain't gonna get up that much speed as to completely wrap it around the pole.
