     A 50k increase in the Advanced Freestyle isn''t hard to do.

If you put rolls on ALL of your vertical lines- both up & down, you
probably have it knocked already!
If that dosn't work, take out the 90 degree turn and figure out another way to 
change direction with a higher k.
Do multiples of rolls in opposite directions on a line.Don't waste time on a 
line without
doing SOMETHING!
Learn how to go OUTSIDE. Pushing into  figures will add 50% to 
your choices of high k maneuvers.
A Pitts S 1S or S2A should have no problems flying Advanced with 50k more or 
less.
Pilots with these aircraft have always had to think harder about energy 
management 
when they design their freestyle. 
The real question isn't whether the airplanes are able to fly a 300k sequence. 
It's 
weather the pilots are willing to accept the challenge.
That's what it's all about, isn't it????????
