I do fly. Own a Yak 50 and my company has an Mu2 Turboprop. I have traditionally been more into playing with airplanes, but lately cars have my attention again.

We rebuilt the Yak engine with high compression pistons, Total Seal Rings, fancy car valves and such.

The Mini is an ok car (for a girl). Putting down power from low speed was frustrating with the wheel snatch. THe logic of the controls is just goofy. The visbility sucks. The seat belt always gets jammed between the door and seat. However, driving up windy high altitude roads was a blast as the Turbo seems to maintain Sea Level type power so its working a lot harder and feels neat. You can slice and destroy any traffic jam in a Mini. Its a real go-cart. The tires are noisy.

RWD>FWD.
