I can't answer these, but I do have a question for you. Why??
The Stryker is fine the way it is. If you want to really push something over 100 MPH, the Funjet is the way to go or a lynx with a pusher setup. Check out Episode #33 of ATTF
. Vinnie of JGF motors talks about the Stryker and speed. He makes a lot of valid points. It is a fantastic plane, and is quick, but if you want something really fast, there are better choices than the Stryker.
