Who has the FASTEST!

Ok,

What is the fastest RIB then...
All the kids in my street keep asking me how fast is it & whats the fastest?
So over to you lot..

I know there are some very fast scorp's, & falcons, BUT what is the DADDY of them all & no, I'm not after the biggest just the fastest..

Has anyone done 100mph in a RIB?

Pete

(also would like a go in it)

Well, Mike Deacon was doing very well in racing until the arrival of...

Techno 40 (also on this forum)

Also see http://www.fbdesign.it/

Brian's been for a spin in that RIB (Eraser2) and enjoyed himself immensely by all accounts. If you ask the guys, I'm sure they will welcome you aboard.

Very simple answer

It's the Techo 40.

Also there are plenty of RIB's faster than Mike's.

Regards

Mark
