It's the sling-shot effect; it always occur when you tear through a gravity well and out the other side. Ask Rapaire to explain it. The 4000th post acted like a large dense spot at the bottom of a gravity well, and we accelerated as we drew closer and closer to it and then SNAP!! we went around it like a giant crack-the-whip chain on a frozen lake in Connecticut in mid-winter. Wheeeee!
