There are lots of options for scoops or no scoops and so forth so itís on the list."

    So, cool!

    There are pics floating around of the new scoop and ducting being fabricated. The scoop inlet looks Dago-ish from the side with a slightly wider mouth opening when compared from the front. There is also a new one piece duct from the scoop inlet back to the face of the radiators.

    Could those pics float their way over here?

    I have seen them, but I am not at liberty to share. They weren't posted publicly.

    This was great!

    I don't have a personal account there.. Literally just a nameless account, from which I follow the air racing threads. That's it!

    Oh really? FB records basically everything you do on the net via cookies they "give" you when you are there... One of the largest money guys behind the startup was a CIA former director.. Evil Empire?? Probably not but if you value your privacy, be careful what you do and say there (FB)...

    Call me totally crazy but lets look at something here. We have Dan Martin at PRS right now as a backup pilot? That is a little like having Mario Andretti as your backup driver. Yes, Dago was taken away from him by the bank. Its now owned by a former Dago team member. If given the opportunity to get back in the seat of Dago, would DM go for a possible backup in Grim Reaper, or climb back into the cockpit of Dago as a surprise entry? IF (BIG IF) Dago is all back together, clearly the rebuild has been kept very hush hush. Up till this statement was made (from a pretty reliable source as well) it was largely assumed to be in pieces in Fresno, fate unknown. I don't know about you guys, but 1 assembled in secret Dago sitting in a hangar, + one Dan Martin at PRS might = Dago returns Sept 2015? Obviously lots of speculation here, but it wouldn't be the first time an unlimited has arrived at Stead last minute after being written off (Jeanie, Tsunami, and most recently PM a couple years ago) How awesome of a surprise would it be to have Dago arrive just before the cutoff time this year?

    I'm not saying it will happen, but what if? We can always dream right?

    Dago was not taken away from Dan by the bank. Dan did not own Dago at any point.

    And I doubt that that the post means the kit is assembled -- I think most of the pieces are more or less in one place...

    Like everybody else, though, I do miss her!
