Default Norvel .074

I picked up a brand-new Norvel .074 at a recent club swap meet. Was wondering if there are any planes currently available that might suit this engine.
I don't know if it has the capability to move a plane to a very high speed, so am looking for a low-drag, lightweight airframe. Perhaps a scale P-51 might be better suited to this engine?

Any suggestions?

Speed is a relative term. I've tried and tried but have never been able to get the .074s with the program for speed. What they do best is turn a 7x3 prop about 16-17,000 to put some of the old 1/2A plane designs "over the top" for all around performance. You could slap one of these .074s in a 1/2A pylon racer or small delta and have a lot of fun and see it go relatively fast with a 5.5x4 prop.
Scale down a Screamin' Demon to about 22 inches
