    Carbon Cub has carbon fiber rods wth a bellcrank midway up the strut I am told because the rod flexed to much when in one piece. Husky has pushrod elevator controls.

    I have gone from 700 series tires and standard gear to 3" gear and 35s with everything in between. I like the prop clearance, period. I am hard on props, sand and gravel. No issue with visibility...

    I bet that Super Cub has brake boosters. If topped off correctly they should have a very firm pedal.

    Pin them even and test fly. You might need to shorten the rear strut on the heavy wing.
