    The wings are clipped at the first "line" in the Mustang wing from the tips. That's about 2-3 feet isn't it?

    And a race engine is important...

    Wings are definitely clipped, will be interesting to see how the engine turns out. Too bad he doesn’t still own 232, could have won this year...

    Race 5 posted a screen cap of the video. It was posted on Facebook. Less than 20 seconds of very close up “teaser” footage. The photo shows all we could really see. The wings are clipped at the production break (2.5 feet off each side) and have metal “fences” similar to what Strega has. Waiting to see if it’ll be capped off or if a fancy wingtip will be added...

    If you have seen the video there is what looks to be a low profile perspex for a canopy there at 0:02 - 0:04 as well

    That was one of the FIRST things I noticed when I watched the video yesterday.

    Could be wrong, but that canopy looks similar to something like Lady Jo (or other TF’s) have just without the frame... I know they do TF’s there also so that canopy might not even be for GF.

    Either way, its been a while since we had some intrigue and excitement building up to the air races.

    No this is amazing! We honestly saw nothing outside of the wingtips and the videographer did that on purpose. There’s plastic wrapping all over the rest of the plane and we didn’t get a glimpse at anything besides the fact that the stock canopy is still on as of now. Cloud Dancers canopy could be on the other side of the plane for all we know
