    Just finished listening, loved every second as usual!

    Also glad to hear the confirmation from Andy of 6 and 44 coming back this year, was hoping they would be on the list

    0:45 shows an extreme example of the flow entrainment we are getting with the exhaust augmenters.

    New turbos and induction lines are welded up and the plane is flying in time for the Air Venture Cup and Osk Kosh. He and the plane will be at the RARA tent.

    Has there been a noticeable change in fuel consumption?

    I haven't heard about any fuel flow changes.

    Can't believe we are already mid way through August. September is coming fast

    Also speaking of September, Race #30 is on the cover of the latest AOPA magazine, and there is a nice article about Andy, the mods, and Reno.

    I'm curious, a new piston design to decrease static compression or a new piston design to increase combustion speed/efficiency?

    The new pistons (old now from a couple years ago) are shaped to reduce friction on the skirt. That's where we were seeing sticking being an issue.
