A friend of mine has a Vans RV. I forget the -# but it is a two place model. He said one of the common problems with the Vans are the gear legs get a funny vibration/oscillation/harmonic at higher speeds during take-off. The fix is to bond a strip of Oak or other hardwood along the back edge of the struts. I guess it doesn't have to be a very big piece as its still covered by the fairing.
