    Does that airborn u-turn require use of the parking brake?

    We have a switch in the cockpit that causes the radiator fans to spin in different directions which causes the car to rotate around it's center axis when airborne.

    I noticed you put the wheels on the gravel at some point. Isn't that bad for suspensions?

    Beautiful car but seems to be lacking in downforce.

    Excellent, Jim...

    Did they get 'permission' before using the image? Or, is it considered 'public domain'?

    Just wondering,

    Considering its Dubai, I thought there would be more desert around the track. But then again I've never been there so what do I know.

    Jim,

    Did you have to submit a flight-plan for that?

    You've definitely been watching too much Dukes of Hazard!

    The ramp-photo + comment cracked me up:) Classic!
