Thanks you all for the insights.

Thank you Remi for the explanation

In this case I would be grateful for some more advice to figure out whether to try to find a 2008 Apollo still available or just go for the 162.

My primary targets (from most to least important) are:
(1) plane as early as possible (and am prepared to pump as much as I can to achieve this)
(2) point upwind with as high VMG as possible in marginal winds (cca 8 kts)
(3) achieve as high speed as possible on a beam reach in marginal winds (cca 8 kts)

Am I correct assuming that the Apollo would give me a "measurable edge" (e.g. pulling away by few % when drag racing) over the 162 on all the above points?

If the difference is "measurable" as above I would try to hunt down an Apollo 2008, otherwise I would go for the 162...

Thank you in advance for any input.
Kind Reards,
