I figured I would check out the web and see what I could learn.

I think I found a video that shows throtle/brake control fairly well, take a look:rolleyes:

Theres nothing else in Iceland to do but wheel so I guess they get pretty good at it.

In the fall of 2007 I took my (then) European sales team to the Porsche factory (http://www.porsche-leipzig.com/default.aspx) in Leipzig Germany. We took a tour of the factory floor and then all did the pilot program (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uwyoGHPVWuM). The video does not begin to do this justice: you could go as fast as you could control the car on an FIA (http://www.fia.com/en-GB/Pages/HomePage.aspx) approved circuit.:D

Our driving skills improved a lot.

How did he get it to turn when it was standing up? I was also picturing the oil pickup tube sucking air the whole time it was up.

This pose reminds me of something very familiar. :-/ A lighter blue color, maybe redder rock...

And yeah, Bruce, that engine was not making happy sounds up on end, was it? An oil starved diesel is sorta painful to hear.

I think he may have had a separate brake control setup. Instead of front to rear proportioning he may have just set it up for right/left rear only.

I just like how he looks in the camera with total confidence, like said before all business. Still pretty darn cool.
