    Nope, BTU/hour and watts are both power, i.e. rate of energy transfer - one in British and the other in metric (SI) units. How 'bout calories per week?

    Pete, the more leverage part is correct, and of course is directly proportional to the tire diameter. However the resistance to spin up, "moment of inertia", which is the rotational equivalent of...

    Well Bob, you can bet I operate diagonal to the runway when it starts feeling marginal.

    Years ago Mark told me the thrustline change would not be of help on my -12. I'm aware of the wing incidence difference, but for the life of me I don't understand why there would be no effect on a...

    Bob, pump the tires up and they all roll just fine. I haven't noticed any discernable difference between 8.50s, BW 26s and BW 31s in crosswinds. I'd bet the GY 26s will feel a lot like 8.50s;...

    I've used both of those, and 31s on my -12. I'd say the speed difference between 8.50 Dessers and 31s is roughly 5 mph, with the 26s falling in the middle.

    The magnetic compass provides a rough check on winds, as compared to GPS track. Mine is quite close to correct, and I do look at it as a cross-check.

    When rebuilding I had purchased a used -18 exhaust system because I liked the crossover arrangement. I thought it might be more efficient than the stock -12 system. But it was so crowded between...
