Probably the fatter ( teardrop shape ) one?

I owned both, and I believe the chief was faster.

Ummm, at the speeds they fly the word 'fast' is misleading.

A pitch change in propellor can make a difference also- as can engine size.

Ha...! Interesting, as I finally joined the Facebook thing, (I only do it for the airplane porn...) and while requesting to join the Aeronca Club’s group.... you are required to ask answer a few questions. And one of the questions is.... “which is faster.....? The Champ or Chief..?

I've seen a 65 hp Chief out run a 85 hp 7AC. It hurt my feelings since it was my Champ.

Could it be because the tank is in the back? I ask because my Champ is 5 mph faster with someone in the back seat.
