Depends on the airframe but my fav for speed, OS.32 and a pipe is the 8x8...

Ditto on the 8x8. If you think this prop / engine combo is too small for your plane, then this killer engine / prop combo deserves to be put on a smaller and lighter plane! I like the results with a 7.2x8.6 for all out speed with the OS .32, but the 8x8 is easier to launch.
