AUW of mine is 5 lbs spot on with a wing loading of 10 oz./ The Forster is running a 16 x 6 Master Airscrew turning 5500 rpm on methanol/BeNol mix. A couple front end shots before the resto, looks about the same now but cleaned up. The Forster is a 1955 model with large intake and exhaust, the last one they produced. It came with a 1/4"/28 'V-2' spark plug instead of the' 'V model 3/8" style used on earlier models.
