"I have since moved the carburetor to the front of the firewall - out of the airbox - and gained 200rpm. It runs at 3,000rpm for a speed of 120mph - the redline of a VP-2," Dale writes. "The red can at the right side is an oil separator for the crankcase."

"My four airplanes. They are Smith Minnie Biplane (I own only a share of the Smith), VP-2, L2-M Taylorcraft, Piper Colt. They all get used," Dale writes.

"This picture was taken from the Smith Minnie Plane. The VP-2 can keep up with it!!," Dale writes. "That is the orange wheel pant of the Smith."
