Undescribable ride.

Had the honour bestowed upon me today of a little jaunt in Abbey's project X TOTB contender.

I have never been in anything so awesomly fast in all my life.

I have had a fly in a Hawker Hunter but upon reflection I think this launched faster than that.

The really scary part was we only ran at a part of the boost available, on normal road tyres.
My feet and legs were lifted from the floor as the grin across my chops grew.
The pilot reckoned we were only using about 800 of the horses so with more in the bank this is one hell of a ride.
A "G" suit and Huggies are my recommendation to the pilot as my internal organs are still recovering.

Excellent stuff and many thanks to the pilot for a ride in the country and the other bit today.
Nick

Oh you lucky Bastard Buster.

In the years to come i think you will be saying you have had a ride in the winning car, and the most respected road car in the world ever.

Im still trying to figure out what he was trying to make.
Give it a few years & ive no doubt he`ll be putting far worse stuff than lego up his nose.
