Somewhere in this thread I noticed that some guy thinks that the 146 TI is a 1.6, it is however the same engine as in the 145 QV i.e. a 2.0 TS/.
The 147 TI is only looking the business, but has a smallish engine. It's like the 145/146 Junior, stick all the fast plastic bits on it but do not touch the engine. Its only to impress the neighbours and de-badging is standard on that thing.
I compare it with the BMW compact, people think it is fast, but even a VW Golf 1.8 can run circles around it.
Rarebear 'fastest piston engine airplane in the world' 4000 hp twinspark (!) radial engine.
Thta's what we call an ENGINE>>>>
