Any of the world models 46 size war birds are fast with a YS 115. have to do a few mods though. They have a Spitfire specially designed for warbird racing. I have 5 of them. These on 60% nitro will do around 170 mpg straight and level no dive. These are perfect for the Warbird race coming up at the NATS this year. Also check out 1/8th scale models on the web or on face book. I have a few of his builders kits and they are faster than the world models planes

Here is a bad video of my vendetta doing 184.5 average on a 14x14 prop. I later went 196 average with a 12x16 on 40% nitro. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cQ66l7nQOls at the Warbird Champ race these vendettas did 201 and 203 mph. I didn't get a speed as i burned up my engine on 75% nitro. to lean trying to get everything out of it on a 13x18 APC prop
