tonight i was at work and i was watching family guy when one of our tuesday night regulars came in. i was talking to my boss and showing him the mp3car site because he had expressed an intrest in what i was doing and thought it was kool. and the regular overheard us an said that he was in the process of building his carpc. so i checked it out, and it wasnt to bad. and he was joking around and said "now all i need to do is lose the steering wheel and put in one flight control sticks you can buy at a used airplane parts store and it will all be done!" lol. I got to thinking and looked up a local airplane parts supplier and gave them a call. they had on in stock that needed to be repaired. but it was for sale. im not going to start a project out of it, but i thought it would be cool thinking about it......when you want to speed up, you push the flight stick forward and the cars cruise control servo opens her up. lol. it would suck if the system had failed and you were doing 80+. has any else thought about this?
