Default West V1 .50??

Where can I buy one of these?? And would it be a good engine for a go fast Mustang?? Or would the Webra 55 be a better combo??
Thanks in advance!

This is their web site. Call them if you need fast service.
This engine is not a standard webra50. It is a real screamer! 21,000 RPM with a 9/7 prop.
It really puts out some power!

The West-50 is a monster but it really comes alive with an 8x8 or similar prop. The Mustang assuming you mean 46 sized would be better with a Jett-50/60LX. The frontal area of the P-51's are just to big for a West to really perform.

Guys in my area race the 40 size World Models P-51's. The fastest are the Dago Reds(low canopy) powered by YS 110 four strokers. These engine pull a prop with a large disk area and high pitch, 14" or so. Like Razor said, Mustangs have a lot of Frontal area. A big Dubb Jett may work too. If you intend to race, go see a race from the pits and learn. Do find out what is allowed for max displacement for 2 strokes and 4 strokes.

Julian537, I been waiting for nitro planes magnum look alike to come back in stock. I was going to put a OS46 on it with a 9X6
prop. Did this plane not hold up, and would you recommend I not buy one?
Sorry to here you lost it!
