So Close, yet So Far
Well after installing the Riva Valve Train upgrade it was finally safe to see what my viper could do.
I sill have some work to do as I am at 8600 with about a 1/4 inch+ of throttle still left
50 air 55 water oh and 6- 10 mph wind
one bar above 1/2 tank gas (non ethonal)
81 mm ring
15/19 riva scat
4 inch air
all the freebies
Ran best with 1/2 tank as it beomes wild as it get lighter

I bet you add some pitch and you will be 82+

i agree that would be the logical next step

Mike, send me that 15/19 for my magic touch
These new 3 blades are a bit funny. When you add pitch you have to resize the OD of the impeller. I'll take care of that for you.
