    I went to see the Daytona 500 last Sunday. Had a Hot pass & saw all the action in pit row as well. Mid 70's was a welcome relief from single digit temps at home.

    I still use a Saito 65 on my Kyosho P-40. It's on the heavy side for it displacement but it's a great running engine. It has the same power as a Saito 62 which I believe replaced it. Some airplanes...

    Has anyone noticed the #1 engine (assuming that was the one that failed) was NOT feathered? The video clearly shows both props were still turning when the airplane went in. As a King Air pilot, when...

    Here you go Bob,

    The 108 FSR fits nicely. The 95 AX I think would be slightly smaller and fit better.
