Paul Walker wasn't driving and they weren't racing anyone. They even suspect that the car had a power steering fluid leak. The car was sold so it's unlikely they would have been abusing it. It had 3300 miles on it. And the Carrera GT is notoriously difficult to handle. So if the power steering fluid leak the shop are hypothesizing is fact, and if Rodas got on it even a little bit, that would explain the straight skid marks into the tree. As for the destruction of the vehicle, it's carbon fiber (which doesn't react well to impacts), and it is designed to break in half under impact, and the gas tank is right behind the seats under the bulkhead. So if the tank gets pierced by carbon fiber or a seat, it could explain the big fire. And remember power steering fluid is inflammable meaning it doesn't need an ignition source to flame up. It just needs heat. So if the ps fluid goes up and the tank ruptured, then the big fire is a reasonable result. But it will all come out after the Sheriff's dept goes over the wreckage.
