I didn't see this but I heard that one of the earlier Rockets, built by TR, had a bad landing at Arlington Friday and needs some serious repair but all aboard were not hurt.  I really felt sorry for the guy - he was real enthusiastic about the plane and was having a blast.  He bought it from TR sometime before this weekend.  I don't have any details other than a big bounce and lack of recovery.
 
I thought Arlington was good this year otherwise - best in recent memory except I froze my a$$ off Thu. night in the drizzle and 50 degrees.  The rest of the weekend was hot.  I left Sat. at 1 p.m. - almost 90 degrees and my autogas took me out at 100 kts. and over 3000 fpm.

Hi Jim-
 
I see you are using autogas.How is that working and did you have to change any thing on the engine? I have looked in to it a bit and the Christensen? people who do most all the mogas stc's told me dont bother switching considering I've got an injected engine .
