I have heard that ol' Billy was not above tipping the nitro bottle up to 25% at times. Makes me wonder how many Fox engines he went through in a season. Coffee

In his USA-1 article he said he had K&B 45s running on as much as 45% Nitro fuel.  Wouldn't want that raw gas getting on the plane.

I took the photo in Lexington KY and am pretty sure it was 75. Cant' remember much about the airplane other than it was beautiful.

Hi Bob

Yes it was either 1974 or1975 I was there along with Ron Farmer, The plane was the "chainsaw fox" Ares  :-).  It was hard to believe the motor hung in there, I think Bill also was running  20 to 25% nitro as it had a unique smell too when flying.

Yep he had his design Gypsy powered by an OS 35S, I don't remember it being overweight, but he was very very weight conscious then
