Before you saw off your wing fairings, I would look at the GL3 that did over 400 mph at Reno. Back in the early 1990's a builder installed a "Spitfire" type wing fairing on his Gl3 and nothing much changed. Ken Johnson had NASA wind tunnel tests done on his GL3 and found nothing much. A Florida Gl2 driver sawed off the rear of his wing fairings during the building process and attached them to his flap so he could have the proper reflex and has the fastest Gl2FT I have ever seen, I think he cruises at 236 mph. Florida Compo beach members performed measurements on Glasairs to see what makes unusually fast ones and found fractions in difference. It wasn't until I sanded off a heavy Centuri paint job and used the light weight PPG paint system, removed a heavy radio stack and installed a very light weight Garmin and removed heavy upholstery for a total reduction of over 100 pounds in weight loss. Then had a Nascar mechanic rebuild my engine, exhaust and baffling  along with a blended foil c/p prop that I was able to break 190 mph cruise speeds and now see 220/230 mph. I was also able to reduce elevator up trim that slows a plane down! My mechanic saw that the factory FT exhaust actually choked the system!!! Now I have to use full right rudder and right braking to prevent the plane from swerving onto the grass on take offs. Anyone interested in a used Narco  cheap? ----Chuck Raymond Gl2SFT driver
