I remember Aviat saying that best cornering G to preserve speed is 3.75 G for a Pitts. Monoplanes at 6 to 7 G. On a day of 85 degrees and high humidity, I would only get 1400 feet of vertical out of a "B" or my "T" . That is with 9 gallons fuel, 200lb. pilot and 3.75 G pull at Vne to a 0 mph. stop.
