<<ha ha ha ok I admit it I watched Knightrider....
But actually I remember the Smokey and the Bandit. That TA looked really
squirrly coming out of the back of that Semi.

>From all the responses... it looks as though doing this in a quattro is
out... could play serious hell on the center diff.... unless someone wants
to loan me theirs for testing =)
Also... RWD seems to be the preferred choice.
I Have always wondered what would happen if a car was doing 60 MPH or so and
then the wheels suddenly stooped (When thy hit the ramp) Seems like 60-0 in
less than a second would strip a differential or shear a torque
converter/flywheel since the engine is probably spinng about three grand and
then suddenly is slowed down to idle in than same fraction of a second..
