    Did only a small flight yesterday, but it looks like about 4mph speed gain.

    I will try to tape small aluminum angles to the trailing edge of the shock struts.

    It's been a while I did not remove my spinner. Today I took the time to do it and check my 86'' Catto prop bolts. Torque was right on at 40lbs.

    If I understand good, you are telling to add another + or - 1/2 inch in horizontal lenght.

    I'v tried, but then there is no more gap. The fairing touches the flaps, even full flap down.

    Something happened yesterday. For the first time in my Super Cub flying experience, I'm convinced I could land where I won't be able to takeoff. A weird feeling.

    Rocks are not common around here but I found some last Wednesday.
    First landing was rougher than expected...

    If money was not a factor, I would be building my cub another set of wings, just to try to be able to fly a little slower. A few mph less are always welcome for me.
