That plane was built by Bobber - he calls it the Barracuda. He's got a piped Jett 90 on it and it flies fast and smooth, like on the proverbial rails. There are build pics under the title "The Jett 90 is a beautiful thing" here in the speed forum. I ran into him about 2-3 weeks ago at the field and watched him get 3 or flights. I'd guess his speed is in the 140-150 range. Too bad he doesn't kit it, because it's a gorgeous plane (plus he did a flawless job building it).
