    Chaser had the original 'points' 447 with only about 200hrs from new, 2 bladed Newton prop. A bit slower than yours, hot was about 55mph at 5200rpm but was so good on fuel at 7lts/hr. It's still in the hanger at Dunkeswell needing a good wash, I'm tempted to buy it back!.
    Cyclone is mid hangpoint, hot is about 58mph but 447 feels to be working hard at 5800rpm hence the higher fuel burn. I have a 3 bladed composite prop that maxes out at only 6200rpm, might try and fine the pitch off a bit to get 6500 & see what that does.

    Don't get too carried away painting. I'm loving the rat rod primer look!
