Slope Racing...

I've got an old dunga of an F3b glider that still seems to fly remarkably well given the state of its wings and the ye olde futaba servos in it. When I finally decide to replace it, what should I look for in a racing slope glider? I've been flying slope for 11 years, and haven't been interested in racing up until now. I've just aquired a Zipper 60" flying wing and finished building it, and i've also got a Reaper 60" up and running finally too (Set up similar to a Raven 2 piece wing). Both are fast, but I still think that a conventional 3m F3B type glider should be faster. PS our best slope racing site is Raglan, do a youtube search and you will find quite a few of our videos posted up there now.

So what did you get, Roger? I have a 2.8 meter Aeromod Alliaj (French) that I like a lot. Unfortunately, no one in our club is interested in racing anything other than a JW, so it's only for slope soaring.
