Bruce - many thanks for the kind words & very helpful advice about the CG placement. However right now I actually try to avoid either flat or inverted spins! And I vote with Dereck on a possible V20 when time permits. The V60 really needs a little brother.

Gary - you can kind of see in my photos that the fuse in the nose area really starts to taper down & I calculate I would've had to move the firewall forward about 1 1/4" to maybe 1 1/2". Also you would lose the benefit Bruce provides in really locking the fuse sides perfectly positioned & parallel with the slotted joining of the FW to the sides. Not to mention also having a FW that is tank-like strong. Finally, my motor is almost all black & I am painting the inner wood & nylon spacers black also, so it really should look OK in the open nose.
