    Do you jack from the wing strut attach point to get the weight off the shock if hoisting isn't an option?

    I like Mauleguy's idea of timing acceleration over a measured ground run and a climb test. As long as the props are the only variable, this seems like the most useful data for most of us. I plan to...

    What about tires, tire pressure, head wind etc. Seems really odd the 150 horse can turn the same pitch prop the same rpm as a 160+ hp engine.

    Sometimes shimming a little more camber into the axle will fix the interference between brake rotor and gear leg.

    I'll second what Stewart said. In my world more AOA is better. I personally would consider 6" gear if you plan to run 8.50s and 31s. The Cub I fly is on 3" gear and 35s with lots of extra angle of...

    Doesn't Bill Rusk get 100 mph with an 84/43 throttled back. I wouldn't think there is a true 20mph difference on big tires with the same prop, especially the flatter the prop. 84/46 seems like a lot...

    Cubcrafters publishes a lot of numbers at "ideal" weight. Might get a better idea by verifying performance with similar loads across the board.

    No wonder it's hard to get and accurate conversion weight from 31s to 35s. Somewhere between 24 and 38 lbs seems like a big range.

    35s can be really tough if they have been on for a while. I tried to get them off the rims for the ferry flight and eventually gave up for fear of damage.
