Here's one for a size relation to the engine. Carb butterfly is 1.06" in diameter. Engine swings a 17.5" dia x 20 pitch prop at 9400 static. Over 10,500 in the air.

I was standing about 150ft from where it happened. It shook the plane to hell. Never seen composites deteriorate so fast. They should have never ran the motor where they did. I think that was in 1998.

The two t'6s on the left are friend's of mine. The stiletto on the bottom is Bruce Brown's. I believe was 98 because the T-6 on the bottom did not exist in 97. hmm... I think it was a spring race, correct? Otherwise, it was fall of 97. Man, now you've got me thinking!

Interesting how the JR stuff started. That was the peak of GSR about then. It seems like it has gone downhill since. Politics, etc... the same game like always in racing.

I believe it was Bruce Brown's Stiletto. Team Extra was the one that I heard was supposedly burglarized.

Default big buck motor's

the plane is clean, all cowled in motor, low drag wheel's. custom design prop, and nelson FAI40. when i get it rockin' it will cruise around 200 on the course. fly it like a jet and do the dive thing and you'll spend 400.00 more for a new motor. RR

Default Nelson

Team Futaba,

Man, that's one impressive engine! I'd love to bolt one of those babies on my Dust but I really need to catch my breath after a launch. That U-control venturi is like trying to fill a water glass with a fire hose. Do they make it with a throttle?

When my Jett FIRE 50 was really cookin' it would jerk that Dust out of my hand so fast I had to immediately throttle back to half and do a circuit or two just to get my bearings. After that I'd put the juice to it and all heck would break loose. When that thing was strong my high-speed passes would leave spectators breathless and shaking their heads. I don't know what I did to that motor but I really screwed it up. Last few flights on the Dust it seems guys were passing me with trainers.

I told Dennis to pull out all the stops with the engine, I want the fastest Diamond Dust possible with a MACS quiet pipe. Can't wait to see what he comes up with.
