In another topic, an idea popped up and I didn't want it to get buried in a semi relivant topic.
Heres the post and original quote from a forum member.
I know, I had posted about A2A making some reno race planes and hardly got ANY replies on that. I would do it but I wilve with capped internet service so I can blow my download info on online flying.
I thought about the same thing... Imagine if A2A gave us the ability to modify the P-51 in the maint hanger by swapping out stock parts and configurations with parts and modification one might find typical to a reno P-51 unlimited air racing team. So you could increase compression, change bore and stroke, change boost pressure, change wing AOI, clip the wings, lower the profile of the canopy etc... So the advantage would obviously be by changing these parts the P-51 would get faster, but the drawbacks would be a change in flight dynamics at regimes other than race speeds and a drop in reliability. Then the user could modify their planes to the hairy edge of performance and the further they go, they would risk not finishing the race.
We saw a simple swap of parts in the Maint Hanger with the spitfires prop, which in turn would change dynamic flight characteristics. I wonder if they could do it to the extent that I am describing?
Obviously, from my point of view this could be an additional addon to the current P-51. So A2A could create income from the additional coding and modelmaking and only those interested in this addon woulkd buy it. I think both parties would benefit, not to mention, it would be another groundbreaking step foreward in FSX development.
