Project "X"

from when we fitted the last moment sponsor for the "X" car Double D cup , we found another .2 secs off of the time this was due to the more control of someones "front end appenages" as Big Mark called them some time ago.

It blew me away when Lisa did the last of her 3 runs and it was not until we looked at the Datalogging that we realised on how far sideways the car got and she only lifted on the throttle 30% i,e throttle was still at 70 % open.

She,s my girl XXXXXXX

I will repost with ....
Lisa Rocks:boobies:

after seeing the two of you knocked elsewhere for not doing 'perfect' launches, it was interesting how many of the hoards of skylines running did not get good launches with cars that would have been a lot easier to drive than your beast.
Well done both of you:smoker: (still buzzin' from how brilliant yesterday was:) )

All I can say is that they are football fans....great at giving advice and critisism....but when it comes to playing the game they quite simply cant....until you have been in a car of that power its impossible to say how difficult it is to control...they seem to be forgetting how much they put me down to begin with saying I wouldnt be able to drive it...and now they say the launches werent spot on....you kinda switch off to it after a while...I am just mega pleased at how it all went!

Well done to the whole team at Abbeys......monster achievement already with plenty more to come I'm sure.
Special respect to Tiggs and Mark for keeping it on the black stuff and coming home with the goods!

The car formerly known as 'project X', now under new ownership and running as Project DD, kindly sponsored by Wonderbra.....lol :D

I was absolutely astounded by the car...everything must just be a blur when that thing gets going ! I have nothing but respect for anyone who can keep that thing going in a straight line - top job to both Lisa and Mark.

I have a couple of runs on video - which i'll be making into WMV's at some point soon. I'll be sure to get them hosted somewhere so that you guys can see them.

Yeh well done everyone who was involved. I think everyone will agree that with a good launch the car will easily be in the 9s & maybe even the 8s. Congrats.
