Default patriot with a huge engine

I saw on the Jett site a guy who put a Sport Jett 90L on his patriot and clocked it at 190mph with a shaved down 11x12 to be a 9.75x12.

Does this sound to good to be true.

I want to build a fast plane that still looks like a plane like the patriot. But when I say fast I don't mean 135mph I want no less then 150 and will love to have 175 or better. Basically I really love jets but I am finding them a little on the expensive side compared to what you could get with the above setup and still have a good looking plane.

What are you ideas on this kind of project ?

Default Fast!

Take A 40 size pattern plane with A foam wing and thin the wing down and put A .60 on it and I bet it would haul butt.They are streamlined already,mybe V-tail it to.I always wanted to take A quickie and thin the wing and sweep it back,do A little work to the firewall,put A lite 45 with A pipe and see what it would do.Sound good?-Wilburn
