indeed...the 17" run-flats have stiff sidewalls, and the awd suspenders seem stiffer, too, but without the filling-rattling properties of my 2nd-gen Ody's. That test drive happened just as the then-new Siennas came out, and I had to search around to find a fwd tester...that turned out to be way more tepid.

LOL. Yeah, pads are $150, and rotors are $800...

I'd like to see more dropped PeeVees.

Test-riding 4 planes next week : one Embraer, two Boeings and one Airbus Wink ... had 3 flights in compact 30-something passenger Embraers so far, love these things. It's like a private jet, very smooth, yet you're very aware of all the moves the - probably grinning - pilot makes.
