Specs.. Are they legit?

There is a lot of Talk about speed specs.  An with Racing aircraft like the Cassutt there can be some real variance.  The basic airframe often stays the same but differnt modifications and how hard you run the engine makes changes in top speed.  I'm going to present Specs that I feel are honest and represent real world numbers and no hype.  Top speeds represent running beyond traditional RPM's  Performance is based often on keeping it light and clean.
