Don't forget also that we haven't filled the sponsons with expanding foam, which saves about 36 kilos at the front end. Plus, we have the option to tweak the thrust line a little in our favour by adjusting the angle of the engine. Only a degree or two before the inlet trunk becomes the limiting factor but enough to make a difference. This of course would have been disastrous for record breaking but we can do it. And if all else fails l'm sure the army can rustle up a couple if sand bags. We'll get it working one way or another.

Cheers Mike and Bill, good answers indeed. Didn't realise the foam was not being added, some serious trimming options open then. Hope what is planned for the weekend shift is progressive. Alas tomorrow it for me is play on the paid stuff, then get my restortion progressed on Sunday.
