F5B ship flown like a F5D ship?

Does anyone fly Hotliners like Pylon racers or is it only me that wishes something as big as a F5B ship would have the all out speed like a F5D one?
I love the power of the Hotliners ... but love the speed of the Pylon racers ... the problem is most of the Pylons are too small and I hate that screaming noise of those little props (this is what has stopped me from getting into EDFs thus far) and the Hotties just aren't consistently fast enough.
I've had a FVK Bandit for about three years now and while at first it seemed scarey fast (for me) now it seems very draggy (which I've since learned that it IS) and does NOT retain energy well at all.
I'm pushing almost 2000watts through her right now at 45ozs AUW ... don't get me wrong ... on throttle she goes ... but off throttle she noticeably slows too much for my liking.
Since there doesn't seem to be any F5D type birds in the 65 inch PLUS wingspan range, I was wondering if anyone flys the typical sized F5B ship F5D style .... and if so what the power setup would be?

Re: F5B ship flown like a F5D ship?
Electric F1 goodyears racers are the way to go, the Toni, Nemesis, Pole Cat and Pogo are all great looking and fly very well. Besides they look like an airplane not like the hotliners.
Not alot of noise from a APC 8x8 prop. Already there is 36 pilots entered in this new event at the US Nats. But I am finding not much interest in Ontario.
There is more Arf's coming out in the spring, Great Planes is bring out the Proud Bird and Hobby Lobby will have the Miss Outrangeous and the Shoestring latter. This event is buy an Arf and start flying, not to many kits available.
Any one who wants info just PM me.
