LOL, thanks so much. Since I am the worst mailer/shipper in the world, as proven last time I made up a bunch of Demon kits, I can empathize.. but do enjoy giving him doo-doo.

Did earlier today. I ran up the OS .91 again today, but now with the shortened Rossi header bonded to that 15cc open pipe I ran last. I may have inadvertently shortened the tuning length slightly...

Since I did not plan to run my OS .77 at full tilt either (and would thus need to put together a longer pipe package for it anyways), I cut off the integral adapter and mated the pipe to a Rossi 10cc...

FYI I compared the carbon pipe to my OS .77 stock pipe - they are remarkably similar in profile,the only difference I could see was that the convergent cone is a bit shorter because it terminates in...

Yeah, could be, it was colder on the earlier runs. Also, saving a few ounces of pipe weight is worth a few rpm.. so obsessing is not likely necessary.

I ran up the OS .91 on a slightly smaller pipe, 1.75" OD versus the 2.25" pipe. I think it is a 15cc marine pipe. Tweaked length up and down a bit, but still lost about 200 rpm on the top - was...

Thanks Scott. I thought it was you who had written that before, memory is a soluble thing. I'll get hold of Shawn - thx.

I measured up the pipe, I would say it is a .90-.120 muffled marine pipe (came in a goodie box). The inlet is 3/4" ID, max OD is 2.25", and it has a 2" section at full diameter before the converging...

Yeah I don't typically run fuel out of the jug in the propped DF engines, I always bring total oil up to 22-23%, and don't need a lot of nitro to go fast enough for _hits and giggles. I use SIG...

OK, what am I seeing here and under what conditions? I was advised that keeping the rpm under 20k would do a lot to keep the engine together. Am I wasting my time?

p.s. no wonder your handle is...

Yeah, for my OPS .65. Ran like a bear but the first 2-3" got cooked a bit. I'd be happy to send it down for forensics.

I made an executive decision on the engine, decided to use an OS .91 VRDF set...

Speaking of which, I still have not got off my dead arse and fixed that 10cc open pipe like I said I was going to. I might just have had the pipe length off and ran the header too hot. I think...

The West pipe is heavy too. I switched to a MAC's open pipe on the West .50, and set it up to run about 21 - 21.5k on trimmed APC pylon props. It ran great and it was fast, but it never topped the...

Nice work!

Did you add shear webs at the back of the D box? Will really perk up the torsional stiffness. Glad to see the wing jigs doing their thing!

You have the makings of a 300kph machine...
