Like the idea of electric power train but robot driver!!! takes all the fun out of it! Besides, how are you going to get it to overheat now and then just so you know it's a hijet?
Looks good though.

I agree but there are drivers out there thatwould be better off behind a wheel that thay have little to do with.

I'm sure there's still rust and I bet a crosswind will catch it out massively. I bet there beats the heart of a true hijet under all of that technology! Wink
