It happens. Tomas and his partner have "day jobs" and sometime they have to play catch up. Send an email or leave a voicemail and they'll get back to you.

The most we could get into the cowl that I was comfortable with was a DLE-35RA. Good but not great power, looks good in the air but not my fasted Warbird. Used a 19/10 maple prop, works well. ...
