    CTSW vertical sliding window

    Or the less well known doorgunner option.
  2. How about a sliding buckle in the strap, that way you could just slide the buckle to the correct position and it will catch against the friction slider. You'd have to make sure the friction on the sliding buckle is pretty tight to prevent slipping. You could also put rivets in the strap at various points. Use rivets that are small enough to pass through the friction slider when open, but not when closed. It would not be infinitely adjustable, but could switch between several set points almost instantly.

    BRS 1350HS Rocket Kit

    I have an E-LSA, and never have to fill out an MRA. But thanks for the link! I'll at least look it over for factory guidance.
  4. They can, they are threaded onto the belts and removable.
  5. You can, or you can make an attachment point for the anti-submarine strap at the rear bulkhead or the underside of the seat. There is probably no need for it in the CT, since there's really nowhere to go in that direction unless your legs get severed...in which case you have bigger problems than sliding out from under your harness...
  6. If you want something less expensive, you can get Racequip harnesses from Jegs and Summit Racing. They are adjustable to various harness lengths, and a buddy of mine uses them in his 9 second / 140mph quarter mile race car and highly recommends them.

    New Aero Classis 4.00-6 Tire @ Desser

    Is the new tire balanced with a valve stem mark? The old one was not.

    BRS 1350HS Rocket Kit

    Will do, but will probably wait until I’m ready to do it, so I don’t forget in the meantime.

    Cargo platform for folding bike

    It's simple, two.bolts. You might have to install a quick connector for the two wires to the PTT switch. My right stick stays out most of the time, it's just easier for non-pilot passengers, especially if they are "husky".

    BRS 1350HS Rocket Kit

    I have to do the chute and rocket this year. Does anybody have a write up for the dissassembly and removal of the chute and rocket?

    Best Aviation Magazine for Sport Pilots?

    Kitplanes is the best aviation magazine for any pilot, IMO.

    Engine thrust alignment

    The cowling built with the offsets in theory should make the alignment job easier; you should be able to shim the mount until the spinner is centered in the opening with the cowl on and it should be pretty close to correct.

    New Floats from MS

    Why won't you talk about it, did you sign an NDA or something? Sounds weird, kind of the equivalent of "I know the real story, but I'm not going to tell you...go find out yourself." Very few people are willing to call about these new floats, when they are 2-4x more expensive and already have a shaky reputation in the aviation community.

    Float bowl pins

    That looks weird...I ordered a new bowl about 18 months ago, and the pins were slightly below the rim of the bowl, not *way* up high like that. Are they loose at all?

    Float bowl pins

    I put epoxy on the underside of the holes on the outside of the bowl, after one of mine became so loose than I had fuel gushing over the hot engine. It's a simple, easy thing to do, and that way if one gets very loose, at least you'll notice a seep on preflight and not fuel pouring out onto the ground when you shutdown like I did...
