I recall the Bud Dake and Jim Younkin contests between Dake's Lycoming Powered Monocoupe and Jim's "Mystery Pacer". This pacer would be my choice. I hope those guys are going to offer the bigger wing as an option. The 110 Special is pretty much of a monster.

Dan, but Bud's 110 was a great machine. Too bad he and Ken were killed in the crash. The Mullicoupes that Jim designed and were completed by Jim, Bud, and Red are quite the airplane too. Boy this airplane world is small! Bye the way, Jim naught the Pacer back last fall. He was drooling over it at Blakesburg last year. Guess when you put so much in an airplane you really never want to let it go.
