	Man, if my wife had seen my 'panache' Sunday at the autocross I
ran, I'd be banned from all of our cars for a year!  I spun (yes, a full
360) a 1500pound E-mod Spitfire with 314hp, almost through the finish lights 
half way through 3rd gear, which in this particular car equates to approx
75mph!  I almost had to change my shorts when I was done!  Fun though! 
Its definutely addictive!  What do they say about power?  Absolute power? 
:-)   I did manage a couple decent runs eventually... once I figured out 
how not to press the loud pedal.  :-)  If it only had AWD, I'd have had 
less trouble getting the power down.  :-)
