    918 driving event yesterday at Autobahn - got to drive new Turbo Ss at full go, and a few laps driving the 918, but not nearly as hard... Pretty cool event...

    I don't think so, the owner tends to have his toys shipped from his place downtown up to LFSC and then shipped up to the track. This has been there going to and from LFSC for the past few days.

    Drove well - we weren't able to push it too hard, but was easily the quickest thing I've been in (30-140 or so). Didn't notice the weight much, only under hard braking. Very smooth and stable, pretty impressive considering what it's capable of... In all E mode, obviously not nearly as fast, but could easily drive around a normal day and not be upset with it... In the other modes when the engine comes on, aside from sound, you can't tell.. No jolt or hesitation at all, just gets louder and faster.

    Darn, I never realized that the most American of all American helicopters is a Russian build.

    What irony.

    I saw the Osprey's and Sikorsky's running up by the "hush house" GRE at O'hare a few days before Obama came in. I think they were doing practice runs since they took off in groups of 3 and headed downtown. The Osprey is a loud and cool airplane.

    I saw that P1 at LFSC when I dropped off my car for annual fluid service and when I picked it up a week later, there was a black one there. Absolutely stunning cars!
