    The prototype FX-3 had a rectangular rear window with some painted over to leave a D shape if my memory serves. People don't seem to mind the looks.

    I turned mine up to 600-650. It had an unnerving tendency to quit when I closed the throttle on an mild uphill landing if I had the mixture a little lean.

    When you say cuff I'm picturing a downward curve at the trailing edge. Sorta gurney flapish?
