Default tracer for speed

i was thinking about getting a tracer ad building it for speed but am unsure if its capable of handling it, or if its the ideal airframe for it. i have a fox 46 thats pulling the engine stand over to get at something. the 46 is the largest engine that the tracer recomends, plus i was thinking about pipeing it. but, the tracer is a "pattern plane" does it have a thin airfoil adn go fast with out fluttering its self to bits?

i dont want one of them flying wing looking things, adn like the "real" airplane look of the tracer. any other ideals for airframes would be ok.

Default RE: tracer for speed

How fast do you and your fox 46 want to go?

I am not sure that a pattern ship would be the best base for a speed plane but anything is possible with the proper application of power.

You could put your fox on a Quickee 500 like a Viper or Lanier Dominator and get some good speed or if you like find a old Q-40 racer and install your fox in it. I hear they make great sport speed planes.
