Post subject: Inside a 500+ MPH Reno Unlimited Racer.....

Received this in an email from PROPS simulated-air-racing guy Gary Osif....this is a cockpit camera video of Dago Red at the last Reno Air races, showing the full race from start to finish while setting a new Reno record of over 507MPH average....barely off the deck......if this doesn't get your blood racing, nuthin' will!

It's a large file but downloads fairly fast...and WELL worth the wait!!!
www.WarbirdAeroPress.com/Online/Dago_record_run.mpg

Check out the Rare Bear lined up with him at the start......and check out how FAAAST that sage brush whizzes by when he gets up to speed....my first thought was, no point in ever trying to drive fast again after seeing THIS!!!!

Oh yeah...hey here's a cool article to read after watching the video....th'pic is from the very same race......DANG!!!!

Who's up for the FS9 equivalent??!!!

Great video Stoopy! As in all things racing, the engine sounds get your blood pumping then the thrill of the race!!!

The pilot kept looking over at the competition so much I thought he was in trouble for a minute there...lol

He was keepin' an eye on The Bear and clearing his constant left turn......Skip turned a great race at 507 MPH but the Bear wasn't too far behind at 498 MPH in that particular Gold race. And that's even a bit off-pace since the Rare Bear still holds the world speed record for a prop-driven plane, at 528 MPH..... that's BOOKIN'!!!!
