Newton was born around the time that Galileo died. Galileo Galilei famously proved that objects of different weight accelerate at the same rate due to gravity by dropping objects of different weight from the Tower of Pisa. Galileo's Leaning Tower of Pisa experiment - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia There have been several great scientists who have had insights into gravity: Galileo, Newton, Kepler, Einstein and more recently Penrose and Hawking. Ok....I'll shut up now......cheque please!
Actually.. it is a myth that Galileo dropped them off the tower of Pisa.
He rolled round objects down a hill and because of the slope, it was more easily observable.

THe tower of Pisa story probably just sounds more fancy and that is why it gained so much popularity.. but it is undoubtedly false. Have a read on Stephen Hawkings website where they go into more detail about this.

0-62.5 mph 3.6 sec with LC off with LC in R mode 3.3 sec
I will never try LC off again!!!!!

Bad for the gearbox.
Does LC stand for Large Cliff?

I presume its bad for gearbox because all the front of the car passes through it went it hits the bottom.................. :rolleyes:

Surely not thats really upset me................

I understand you being a little disappointed with your time at the Pod but isn't driving it off a cliff to improve that time a bit drastic?

There'll be no second or third run you know!

depends on how much bhp you have + what drag co. <0.27 and also how much slip(grip) you got from 1st and 2nd gear.

I lost to a R34 with (750 bhp) with my almost standard GT-R (500 bhp) with drag ( I am a beginner with shifting even with automatics at drag)

Thats so very true slip is important - I missed gear cos my hand slipped off the gearlever when I tried to change up.


Of course I wont have that problem if I use the LC going down
at dover
















TMAXX question is ....... how long can this thread go on ?

:chuckle::chuckle:
