There's no date on the page, but that link has been on the Just Engines website for as long as I've been doing business with them...over 2 years.

I like the part that says...Whilst Andy’s record, set at 183 mph is impressive, speeds during practice reached a remarkable 234 mph (but could not be counted for the record due to limitations on the current timing equipment... sounds like a wad of hooey to me, TJMHO.....[:@]
I had a whiplash that did 328 mph but that was on a windy day and my atomic stopwatch was running a millisecond fast...
by the way Ray, did you ever fly your whiplash?

i saw this plane run at Woodsprings 2000, the current Magnums are faster, and i've got those at 185 on the flat..
there was also a DF Hawk at 208, and that wipped the Windsocks sorry ass
IF the 234 figure is right its in a dive which wont count anyway ( which is why the limits on current timeing equipment LOL ). a friend is getting this mini windsock, another had the big one thinking it was the mini, slow as concrete and never left the only flat spin it did.

this year at Woodsprings i saw a Stingray jet at 230, and it deffinatly looked it.

the same spec engine used in the JE Windsock has been used here in Magnums and Deltas, with results around the 150-170 mark. 183 is doable with this set up in the right hands.

wasssup rick, not yet. ive got it ready to go but after the world c/c i heard henry has new cranks for them. so instead of sending it to the delta gods i was going to send it to dave for some re-vamping. but the nelson fai is being redesigned from the case up so its back to the delta gods for the one i have. by the way my fai profi mb 40 leaves the ground at 29000 + rpm. if you have seen the video you can understand the rush.
