    I agree on the 6:00x6, but prefer yellow Cubs. My personal J3 has a stripe as dimensioned above, but it is red with a black pinstripe. My bear is 150% of the original. Blasphemy, huh?

    Every time an item changes hands for money it is taxed by most states - new or used. Has been for years - decades. They are just getting around to enforcing it.

    So are patented items. I did say “opinion”.

    Piper doesn’t have to release drawings either, but if it is on the TC we can do it for free.

    I have seen a lot of ground loops lately. Only one resulted in that kind of damage, and that is because the pilot went to full power and full back stick on the bounce. It almost went inverted.

    Maybe, but seems to me a failure of the shock strut will result in a 45 minute repair - especially if you have a spare gear leg.
