    What effect do you think there is on your glide ratio? Maybe we can
    negotiate a BAC group price.

    I really like the reduction in stall speed.

    Thanks,

    Tell me a little more about the bushings you remachined and how that
    works.

    Shelby,

    Do some searching. I think we already are getting a BAC discount. I think it's $100.
