"Sure would like to see it", thats what I told Nick. Nick and I discussed a
lot about that, but REAL maths were not involved as far as I knew. This does
not mean that we didn't agree. Pre-loading the decelleration track would not
be troublesome if one could aim the "cannon"/"lineac" precise enough. But
about this aiming problem we did not agree.
If it is not clear to anyone how to pre-load the decell track, assuming
there is no aiming problem, I wouldn't mind to explain, just ask me some
specific questions.

Greetings Timothy

P.S. My name is Timothy van der Linden, I'm a real Dutchman so the
contraction to "VanderLinden" does not apply.
