On the other side, the top of megalomania was a triplane Super-Lightning with 60 engines (no matter drag, power will win, fast!):

Sorry for the pain in your brains...

Now let us be serious: do you know the 3-engined single-seat Twin-SuperMustang racer?

There were related F-38/3e, in several versions, faster and faster:

The Tandem Wing Super Mustang (TW-SM) was the winner of Reno 2021, do you remember?

Oh yes I remember it like it was yesterday tomorrow!

Great stuff, mon ami! I especially like the way you placed that engine up on the tail.

Your Tandem Wing Super Mustang (TW-SM) is fantastic (in all senses!) but the Twin-SuperMustang is verrry clever  :D

Thanks!

And the Italian Mustang racers were trimotore or cinquemotore:

That trimotor Mustang could be passed off as an actual design study!

Love the five engine one too!

Great stuff, mon ami!

Thanks!

And the P-51R-4360 was fast too, but the problems in weight centering and torque needed improvement, I will show you other steps.

Nice. :)
For the last one you could make a smaller canopy ... but not very small  ;) or a stremlined canopy

Yes, the final one will have a smaller canopy, but first the problem was to deal with torque from this huge engine/propeller:

I think here are the final versions, with small canopy, no torque problem nor centering issue (using nose wheel):

The Super-Ramjet-Lightning was better maybe, with 2 piston engines to reach the ramjet ignition speed:

As visibility was not a problem for a racer, pusher Lightning canards were good candidates for Reno.

Your imagination is brighter that the flash of chrome at race day, mon ami!

It never crossed my mind to mount P-38 booms backwards and turn the tail into canards.

Outstanding Concept!
