Man that is a beautiful bird!!!! 

582??   Hows it fly with those 31's verses stock tires?  Is that a single seat plane now?

THANKS

No it is a rotax 912 ,no reason for it to be a single seat.Empty weight is only  675 lbs and gross is 1200.

Top speed is still around 100mph with the IFA prop.Still will climb over 1000 FPM.Gets off short because of the steep AOA.The big tires just allow you to land in places like these rocks and help suck up the bumpy stuff.
