    Viper has been at Stead the past several years. Unless they have removed the viper engine and returned it to "stock" it is still not welcome in the jet class per the rules.

    Aware of that, considering it was in formation training Iím assuming it has a different engine.

    Or someone was just using it to renew their FAST card before the races. Doesn't have to be class legal to do the formation clinic.

    If I remember correctly, they also banned the viper engine change because of the engine mount and lack of proper engineering. Remember the L-29 that wanted to kill Heather Penney? Same mount and engine I believe. I could be wrong.

    Same setup. Jet class rules now prohibit any jet from racing that has an an engine that was not installed in a production variant. There are other things that drove that change as well, and to reverse it would require the class, the FAA, and RARA to agree on it.

    According to the 2018 Jet class rules, they are going to be enforcing the 525 speed limit more harshly as well. Do it once and you get a DQ for that race. Do it a second time and you're done for the entire event.
