What you guys are having on speed? Mine used to indicate 160mph, but with all mods I've done now it shows 190mph 25/2500 at 4000ft.

From my work on Pitts I’ve fround the combination pitot static tubes don’t do well giving acturate indications. The culprit is the static source. With a Pitts you crack open the alternate static source and the indicated speed comes really close to what it should do. On the Laser’s pitot static tube I added to the diameter right in front of the static port holes with two layers of electrical tape and it’s really close now.

My Laser WOT, 2700 rpm, down low and measured with a 4 leg GPS run trued at 206 mph. I’d have to dig out the test info to be sure, but I think the D.A. was somewhere around 1500’.
