Argument:  Precious Metal showed up at Reno 2013 with an exciting paint job, a new engine program, and a bunch of aero mods.  The new scoop and wing body fillets came off another mustang, but the wingtips and canopy were new for the type.  The new tips represent a new approach to the problem.  While the team has not yet been able to put the power on the airplane required to prove their performance, the new approach is exciting in a race class for which the solutions have been generally unchanged for many years.  Thom and Eric did the engineering, the fabrication, and the initial flight testing of the parts, a very multi-disciplinary undertaking.
