That turbo spinner is probably just as much drag as not having one at all. A good solution is to add some thickness to the front lip of the fuselage and round it over. Then run a spinner that is smaller, leaving an annular gap for cooling air. Take a look at Rare Bear or other high speed radial powered airplanes. I used this on a speed 400 model that does 200 mph. Seems to work well.
