    Designing an aircraft with BRS

    G'day all, I too am interested in BRS setups - specifically in the upper limits of their capabilities. I'd like to know could an off the shelf BRS be retrofitted onto an RV type airframe and what the operational limits might be if you could. Cheers Tom

    Direct drive SBC

    Greetings, This has been an interesting thread to peruse and develop ideas for my (seemingly distant) future kitplane endeavour. Anyway as a new member, is there much information readily available about turbo compounding an Auto V8? I ask as I came across the idea on Paul Lamar's site Turbo...
