High speed ground tests

Post the engine refurbishment I needed to conduct some (final) high speed ground runs to check for oil leaks under high RPM

The brakes on the Ranger are basically bike cables so wont really hold her much above 2,300 and I need to get to 3,200 and even 3,300 … without the need to chain her to a hangar !

On both these high speed runs, I’d intended to stay on the ground .. but she just always wants to fly … probably something to do with all that lift area and chucking a load of air over them !
