No but that is a good question; I hope to be flying mine all winter, so that would be good to know.

Tail ski is a custom thing I folded out of Plastruct. Make a ski shape with "wings" on the side, fold those up and put the tailwheel axle through that.

No mods to original gear. The Du-Bro things bolt right to the stock gear. I think I may have filed a flatspot on the axle for the collar to bite into.

Nice!

How do you do those low rollers, esp. with the Tx mitt?

Looks a little colder than the Northwest.
