Default Big Time Noobie Question

I was sitting here at work, and a n00b question just crept into my head. Every morning when I get to work, I take the keys out of the ignition and arm the alarm, then walk in my building while the turbo timer is counting down. My n00b question is this...

With the keys out of the ignition, but the engine still on, is it possible to drive the car??? lol... I know I'm stupid, but whatever, the thought just crept into my head. Anyone???

First of all, the steering wheel will be locked without the key so it would be hard to get anywhere without turning the wheel. Secondly, I'm not sure how your TT is installed but when I installed a remote starter on a car I had years ago it was tied into the brake pedal switch so as soon as the brake was depressed the engine would shut off.

Yah. You can't drive it without the key. Most TTs will shut the car off if you try, and certainly there's the steering wheel question. MAYBE someone could get 30 seconds of driving out of it, but that'd be all
