Or the least petrol used ..he has that extra 0.5hp which could make the differance...

Lets leave these gas guzzling 200hp + monsters at home...2/3 could be the max allowed in super small SIB club

Last time we had a race he had 250hp and I had a mere 200....

Scale everthing back by a factor of hundred/ten...

250 & 200 hp = 50knts

2.5 & 2hp = 5knts (on a good day)

Hundred times the power only gives you ten times the speed - got to love physics

I think 2.3m or 2.7m - anything bigger and Avocet will have the 'edge' in our races..

Chris M - got your message - stuck at desk all day - but I'll call later .
