Sure wish I had a chance to shoot her from the pylons this year.

Good eye. I didn't see that until you commented.

I noticed that in a pic and video that Florian posted...the video shows the wheel out during the whole clock run...probably tossed Hoot's chance at a low 470's run on a stock engine without the slow nose case...what a slick airframe :)

madman,

Nice pix, thanks for sharing.

I like the way you were able to keep the shutter speed down to keep some motion in the prop, but still get a sharp image.

Cheers :D

She looks so much better now with the red and white treatment on the underside of the wings.

I know my memory is not as good as it used to be and I know that these are the longer wings but, were the longer wings always painted that way with the white outer trim and numbers or were they just painted recently?

Before the wings were clipped they were all red. Also, the tail didn't have the horizontal white stripe.

The short wings are still out there, Mike Brown bought the short wing panels that were on Critical Mass and had new tips made, the long panels that are on it now are the ones Mike won with in 06.
Also, the "stock" engine is a -93 just a carbureted version instead of the injected one Mike had, so it still has big power potential. It just goes to show how much a slow nose case can help.

Jason, did you get any qualifying videos from that week? Any vids in addition to the final race film?

I sure did, I just need to dump all my tapes to the computer and edit some stuff together.
