The sprint cat looks good, a Stryker top with a Sprint bottom.

Thanks Eric ,should have the hull in primer tomarrow.

Changes

Capped the hull and deck togeather.

Smoothed and altered the tunnel transition in the front/I will put up a pic of it later

Altered a f41 drag cowl to fit the Sprint cat.

I have a great theam for it since it is drab green and will run an SS motor but not sure how many people would get offended my wife looked at me and .


Eric you will be pleased to know this on will get a short stand off and tapered rudder and a standard short strut TSB of corse.

Jake, your SS is a higher timing engine, it might reach a real high RPM like 19000 or more, it requests high oil ratio like 10 oz to run it, the best carb setting for it is 1 on the H needle and 1-7/8 on L needle. I may send my redline back to Mike to rebuild it.

Lowered the L to 2 or 1-7/8, you will gain about 2-2.5 mph and your plug still looks light brown.

I found that this sprint cat needs a CG that is more than 32% of the setup, otherwise it will run unstable in the high speed, added total about 18 oz of weights to mines, now her nose is heavy enough to keep it down, as the results, she runs like glue in the water when she gets up to low to mid 70's, I more love this cat since I got her out from 60's.

I set my Flacons CG at 35% and the Sprint Cat will be the same.Here are some pics of the sprint cat in primer needs some more love on the sides to get arched line stright and needs more sanding and some glase puddy.[img][/img]

It's windy here too, 20 miles per hour and the temperature suddenly turned down to 55 degrees today kind of cool.
