Strewth Ray, even I wouldn't have tried that one. My maddest "bitsa" involved a TD.049 powered rudder/elevator Sharkface. This was pretty quick, but in the search for even more speed for our club pylon race I strapped the TD049 pod from my Soarcerer onto it. That worked, running on Super Nitrex (30% nitromethane) fuel it was now ballistic and the sound was epic (no silencers!) but the extra weight on top meant that unless the turns were flown with utmost delicacy it rolled inverted on rudder application. Made life interesting (and a bit frightening for the flagmen) at the pylons
