My experience is the reverse of Tony's Pat. On grass, my 50" Spitfire managed just fine. Had to be a touch judicious with the throttle of course, but as soon as you have any forward motion, the tail is going to lighten up and the rudder will work fine. Of course in a crosswind, you have issues and you won't be able to taxi back to the pits (unless they are directly up wind :-))

Regards,
Jeff
