View Full Version : FW190 d9 44 45 speeds.

just did some testing with 44 45 doras.

on the deck the 45 dora is about 10 kph faster than 44. 45 also seems to accelarate better on deck, but thats subjective.

at 6000m 44 is about 20kph faster than 45.

i haven't found crossover alt yet, im guessing about 3000m, maybe someone else can confirm.

so all you fw drivers should take 45 dora if your hunting deck hugging spits..

ive found the 45 dora to be a excellant low alt dogfighter, just keep your speed up.

Don't know if there is a difference (never tested it) but what FW-190D is more prone to ruin engine?

haven't noticed differance beteewn doras, as far as ruining engines goes. i always use auto pitch btw.

Yeah me too. I didn't used manual pitch much for quite a time. Maybe on early types...

I asked the question since they are using two different WEP/BOOST systems so I thought maybe someone tested the differences in engine endurance.

Kuna do you mean using boost?

The only way to ruin engine using 190D boost is if you put MW50 on while throttle is at 100% or over. Make sure you are under 100 when u switch it on and then throttle up to 110.

The other one 'erhote noistulung' or whatever never hurts my engine however I use it.

Is this what you meant?

Interesting findings VonRat, I have always wondered just how much faster teh 45 dora is. They always 'seemed' about the same speed to me.
