here are some pics from today.

got a slowwww connection here so I will only post a few.

using a cheap-o camera so .......

We left about 6:30, so more may show.

Furias looks great, pilot says they spent $$$ (I dont want to repeat the amount he said) and its faster than its ever been, claims faster than the Bear in a straight line, waiting to see how it handles the course. The Rarebear pic has paint still drying from the pin striper adding Petes name. The props on Precious Metal look great and the pilot says vibration is wayyy down with the new blades.

Cool stuff

I got a up close and personal look at those new props on PM. They are wicked awesome looking. I didn't get a chance to talk to much to Thom or Mike. Was heading Into work and didn't have time. I hope to talk more Monday or Tuesday.

I can't remember PM ever looking so nice! Better use dark shades at high noon. You might go blind from the reflection of the sun.

It's an interesting comparo. 232's engine is smaller than Furias' engine, but because it is in rows of 9 cylinders instead of rows of 7, it is a wider engine. So 232 is a hair wider than Furias, at least up front. And Furias' engine is longer and its tail is taller, making its body look smaller and narrower than 232's.
