You got that right...
Way back when, I flew my TCraft to Sun N Fun and parked next to several Tailwinds. Steve Wittman was being honored and I got to meet him and chat a bit. He even autographed my TCraft with a sharpie. He asked me to give him an F16 ride to my reply of "I'll show you how to start it, after that you're on your own"!
To this day, all my airplanes have a few of his "speed tips" applied, even my M5.
Years later I would deliver a Jim Clement built masterpiece with a well tuned 0-320 and a Warnke prop, frustratingly it was quite a bit faster than my RV4 at the time, very cool.
