Re: REFLECTOR: Something for Nothing???

 I am considering replacing my 8.7:1 IO360C1C pistons with Performance 
 Engine's 10.5:1 pistons. >>

Thanks Alan for the input.  I failed to mention my goal for this.  Cruise 
speed is NOT the goal, but shorter takeoff only for my STG-RG.  I know that 
the real answer is the CS prop (I am using Performance now).   Since I am 
going to be pulling the cylinders for pistons pin end plug reasons anyway, ( 
yes A.D's do apply to experimentals) now would be the time to look at 
compression.  With my current engine prop configuration, I couldn't use any 
more HP in cruse with the FP prop anyway unless I wanted to overspeed the 
engine (no thanks).
