    Raptor Composite Aircraft

    I don't think you understand what Peter intended to do by passing fuel through through one intercooler stage. He was trying reduce intake charge temperatures. This varies considerably compared with heating the fuel through a turbine engine oil cooler as is commonly done on production aircraft...

    Raptor Composite Aircraft

    He's had several YT pilots offer to fly it for him.

    Cool New Canard Designs

    I got to meet and talk to Jeff for a bit at Reno. Cool design and nice, no nonsense guy. Best of luck with this project Jeff.

    SDS EFI at Reno 2019

    Andy took the Sport Gold again this year after Jeff called a Mayday on the first lap. Jeff had vile luck all weekend. So unfortunate we couldn't see these two duke it out. Kudos to both teams who gave their utmost. Everyone at Reno is always so friendly and kind. That always makes it a great...

    SDS EFI at Reno 2019

    Andy took Saturdays race by a large margin over Jeff LaVelle. I hope Jeff was just conserving his new engine for the big showdown on Sunday. I want to see these two really race. Lee Ulrich won heat heat 3D with his turbo RV-7 after Dan West got him yesterday right at the line. Good battles...

    SDS EFI at Reno 2019

    Andy took the race today again. We need Jeff in there for the weekend races to make a proper show of this. Processions are no fun to watch. I'll be in the pits bright and early.

    Murry, if you're at Reno this year, maybe we can meet up.

    SDS EFI at Reno 2019

    Dizzy Dean, the baseball player..."It ain't braggin' if you can do it." And the old adage- "when the flag drops the BS stops" Andy's success and ours is due to years of hard work. I'll let our record to date speak for itself. As I come from a long racing past, I get a lot of satisfaction from...

    SDS EFI at Reno 2019

    Andy won the race today by a large margin. Many other people are struggling, going 50-75 mph slower than they have in previous years. Some of these have switched over to brand X EFI which could explain some of their problems...

    Raptor Composite Aircraft

    The temperature comment was absurd. Since the manifold didn't show any signs of distress he assumes the engine won't either. How many different people have told him 1750F EGT is way too high on a diesel in the YT comments? I guess he'll find out the hard way... Hasn't even run 5 minutes at TO...

    SDS EFI at Reno 2019

    Andy Findlay is on the pole in Sport Class this year at 398 mph, which is faster than all but two of the Unlimited qualifiers. I'll be at Reno Saturday and Sunday, wearing an SDS T shirt, hanging out in the pits near the following aircraft mostly: 30,31, 3, 101, 61, 39. I'll have some free SDS...

    Raptor Composite Aircraft

    I think it's slowly dawning on him that he's not as smart as he thought he was back in 2013. Learning to build a successful aircraft of this complexity by trial and error will take a very long time without some professional help. I'm waiting for the installment when Elliot gives him the thumbs...
