    Voodoo has NEVER beaten a healthy Strega. Voodoo has never come close to the qualifying record Stevo set in Strega. When was the last time Strega needed any speed mods? Second place sets the pace. Although, there are rumors they are working on some new stuff.....

    Voodoo has never been at the same level it is now. I think Strega may now need some speed mods to stay with Voodoo.

    If Strega is as refined as a Mustang can get, why didn't Steve-O clone Strega's scoop on Voodoo?

    Bear might win in a RC race, but it can't beat a healthy Vintage V-12 powered race Mustang.

    If they both are healthy it will be interesting. 7 is faster than 5, but Steve has a lot more time in race birds, and on the course. Lets put it this way, if Steve was back in 7, and it's healthy, no way, no how, anyone could beat 7.

    Exactly. A healthy 5 in its new full tilt boogie state has yet to race, let's face it, an old full tilt boogie set up on 7. Not that 7 isn't obviously fast but, 5 is state of the art. A changing of the guard is at hand.
    You'll get your chance, smart guy!

    Discussions about the "Bear" being able to beat "anything" would have to be pure speculation at this point in the history of the airplane.

    With all due respect to the Ezell's, they removed a lot of systems from the Bear that affected the reliability of the airplane. Unfortunately, much of that mysterious, hard to understand stuff they took off fell under the category of "secret $hit" built over decades by some of the greatest minds in the sport, not to enhance reliability, these mods were installed purely because they made a contribution to the magic of that airplane engine combination that created SPEED!

    In the old days, the old girl either broke or did really well.

    The "Bear" of today, unfortunately is a completely different racer than it once was. Possibly, someday, she'll be as fast as she once was.. For now, she's sure as hell a lot more reliable!
