Oh, and it cost somewhere around $50000 or so. Enjoy!

Personally, I'm holding out for an automatic.

The "drink" button triggers a pump that delivers the Gatorade. You don't want to strain yourself sucking from a remote bottle through the 6-ft-long straw.

Pete, I have no doubt. The question is, do you fiddle with the Piper's gizmoswitches while undergoing 5g manuevers a handful of times every 90 seconds, in close formation with other planes, at around 180mph?
Heck, can an Arrow even do 180mph? Or take a 5g load, come to think of it?

The fastest and toughest airplane I have ever flown is North American T-6 "Texan". It tops well in excess of 200 mph, in fact I was going faster through Valles Caldera. It can pull 5g easily and actually it takes a certain attention not to black out accidentially.
But without doubt proximity operations are the hallmark of F1. They are made easier by the advanced safety that F1 racers enjoy these days, but back in the day Fangio was doing 75% as fast WITHOUT A SEATBELT.
