Mike I think less likely to ground loop but the additional weight aft could
fail the tail cone or tail spring.

Moving the mains forward will increase the weight on the tail wheel,
possibly increase the tendency to ground loop (more weight behind the
wheel?) and make it harder to make a nice smooth wheel pant shape.

further forward so that the a/c would be less likely to tip onto its nose,
especially when braking. I'm only talking about 1 or 2 inches. Any thoughts
out there?
