I'll be gone thru this weekend, taking off to Wolfsburg, Germany. There I will be doing the 253 mph run like you've seen on Top Gear.

Hopefully they will let me do some photo & video.


I will still be able to do my emails etc... with my laptop. 20 hours to get there, stay for one day, 20 hours to get back. Enough time to get home and set up the next ftv update lol.

I can't believe you are actually doing something for yourself! You are so glued to FTV and D's site you never take time off to enjoy life. Just don't run off the track in one of those fast moving cars!:eek:

You're probably well on your way to Deutchland by now. At least I hope you've gotten out of O'Hare! I wish you great weather and high speeds :D Please try to get some video if they'll allow it. Maybe they'll have an in-car camera.
