Default bobcat .40 + OS .61 MAX

what would it take to get a bobcat .40 to break 100MPH? I have an OS .61 MAX, I had it in a .40 P-51 pulling a 11x8 prop at 14000rpm. what do you think this set up would do in a bobcat?

I would guess a TT .46 turning a 9x7 or 9x8 could do the trick?

42 mph? thats pretty good for a chevy!. that setup should get ya close. my friends has tower 75 in his. and it will does just over 100mph. nice plane, but still the slowest plane in the hanger heh.

looks like as fate may have it, I'll have the money to pick up the bobcat on sunday. so unless my eyes deceive me and my pony was faster then I thought this should be the fastest plane I've flown.
