    That's quite possible -- I shot from several places along the old fence line over the years. These look right for a location where all the older houses are in that development. I remember racers being pretty level there, but it's also not real far from pylon 7.

    Not at all -- this is interesting. I'd never thought much about the oil cooling arrangement, in terms of where the air went.

    First shot is blown up and enhanced from the already posted image. The next is similar but with less visible flow. The last seems to be pulling off the course with no visible flow. My guess is that this was a test run on moderate power -- he seems to be running fairly high.

    Third shot looks like a more normal spray pattern, if you look closely in shot 4 you can see the bottom of the oil cooler just above the exit. There wasn't much room for stuff in that portion of the airplane and it was crowded. I've worked on a lot of airplanes and that is still the most difficult, sometimes I'd question my sanity. But it came with a lot of satisfaction, friends and odd scars on my arms that I get to explain to my nieces and nephew. Look at the photo in your own post #112 in this thread with regards to cooling the oil.

    You can see both four and three bladed props also on the trailer.

    Another thread has been started on this here. Mostly discussion about whether or not the three-blader's on there...despite it seeming obvious that it is!

    Maybe there's a record attempt in her future?

    Where would they do it? I doubt Joe Clarks ranch will still be available, but I don't know if that's true. We can try to start a rumor that Rear Bear and Voodoo are going to finally figure it out once and for all in the high desert of Idaho. Of course that would be complete nonsense right..

    Jeez, talk about getting some knickers in a twist.

    No clue where they'd try it. Just some off-season speculation.

    I was trying to make a joke, sometimes these threads get a bit dark. My sense of humor isn't always funny to a lot of people, I meant no offense.

    I got the joke and chuckled quite a bit. There are a lot people who would take it as gospel. You didn't offend me in the least.
