Default Outlaw faster with a spinner

So if you have a delta like the Outlaw do you think it will be faster with a spinner or just a prop nut?

Even if they differ, I wonder if you could tell in flight without radar.

The real difference would come with a fully cowled engine with a spinner, if any.

A spinner may not add any speed unless it blends into a cowling as mentioned. A blunt trailing edge causes drag.
Check out the drag on different shapes.
