I assume you mean "airborne", not "air born".
Significant difference between launching the car into the air (can't say that I have gotten mine airborne) versus this person who was air born:

Only when the Falcon 9 engine deploys out of the back of the car...
The only problem is landing it correctly afterwards. :tongue:
Yes, I got the suspension that bears me along on a cushion of air.
Yes I've left the ground in mine. twice the landing bottomed out the back end.... but hey, warranty! lol.
Yes. Model S flies like a streamlined brick. I do not recommend it.
Tht's what rental cars are for :smile:
Remember this from last July in LA?
I'm assuming the driver (if he were still alive) would not recommend it.
"Nothing handles like a rental car"
I was at Watkins Glen for an Audi club "high performance drivers' education"* years ago. Someone flew into Corning Elmira Airport (about 30 minutes from the track), rented a generic GM econobox, and came out and did a few laps, before the brakes started to fade.
* Most people would just call it "amateur racing", but the car clubs don't like the R-word - HPDE is "non-competitive" (yeah, right) and not technically racing. It's more of a distinction to keep the clubs' insurance companies happy.

The insurance companies don't care anymore. Over the past decade (or maybe two, I'm getting old) they've all changed from wording that excluded "timed events" to excluding anything that happens on a track. HPDEs used to slip through on a technicality, but good luck getting track damage covered these days, timed/competitive or not.
If you're taking a car to the track that you can't afford to write off, you better have dedicated track day insurance.

True, but I meant keeping the car clubs' liability insurance companies happy, not the car owners' collision companies happy. Re-reading my quote, that wasn't clear.
I'll edit my post to make that clearer.
I live in Colorado, so we are "airborne", so to speak, most of the time.
Your comment reminds me of an article I saw on Yahoo's home page recently about the Mile High Club :smile:
