Hi Pete: I totally agree, my past experience with twins has had its share of complications in getting CG. We all assumed right from the start the battery would likely need to be as far forward as possible. Big surprise to find it back as far as it could go, and need spinners and exhaust covers! All is assuming the plan CG is correct. Everything I've uncovered says its fine. Doug B
