    Exactly Chris!! I do not put CA in the threads - it makes them too strong. A tapped 6-32 thread in oak is quite strong. I use tapped 8-32 for the big 43% Cardens. I also use Aluminum bolts...a little more give than steel. Anything to help save the structure. I'd rather plug and retap enlarged holes in an oak block than try to salvage the carnage of a torn up structure with a gear in hand and the mounting system attached to the gear, LOL.

    It is also still very dependant on how the impact occurs.. if you drop the plane from 10ft off the ground and it flattens the gear out and compresses the box, this mount does nothing.... more for those event like landing with forward speed in a plowed field, etc, where the force is trying to tear the gear out.

    Yep! Works especially good if your harrier is inverted

    Trevor,
    Is this lady keeping the same dress or a "Monster" change in the works?
