Recent = five months to two years ago.

Click on the link for a first post-overhaul run of an R-436-20 that is apparently destined for the ex-Dick Becker (?) F2G, race 74. The exhaust stacks certainly suggest F2G unless they're test-only.

This individual also posted some other engine runs of an R-2800 and an R-4360-63 - scroll through the links on the RH side.

Wow, thanks for posting.
A 4360 in a Corsair... NOT Bob Odegaards?

Do you know whose?
Race plane?
Fabulous.

Bob Odegaard is restoring this F2G. It's the one that Walter Soplata had for so many years.
