Work piled up on me so I'm not heading out until tomorrow morning - but I'll be there!

N16GN flying! http://websites.expercraft.com/airguy/
Built an off-plan 9A with too much fuel and too much HP. Should drop dead any minute now.
If you are at Reno this week. Get out there a bit early and watch a purpose built race 230 MPH biplane in action. Phantom, Race 62 is an incredible example of what happens when an experimental design is optimized for going fast and turning left. 62 is scheduled to fly in Thursday's 2A heat at 0855 hrs.
Start with installing a twin turbo IO-540 from a Malibu ...
Same way to get an RV-7 to 240, start with a large turbo and a lot of work.
Bear in mind these are lap speeds, straight line speed is higher.
