    and lets not forget a post I saw on this sight some years back, "you can only push a swing set so fast" or something to that effect.
    Younkin's Pacer probably had all the best features for speed.

    Anyone on the forum familiar with this type of Cessna gear leg installation on Pawnee's? I have seen a few on the internet and apparently it was an STC. It appears to be a frame that is bolted to the stock landing gear mounts with C-180 legs attached.....

    I did an annual on one last year. Yes, it is an STC. Don't have the number off hand but can find out.

    Worked a few Super Cubs with the fuselage tubing modified for spring gear.

    Wasn't someone advertising a cessna gear mod/stc for super cubs a long time ago in trade a plane? Too bad no one is making a nice carbon gear for weight and speed.

    There is an STC and I have flown one. It is faster but not as good for rough landing areas. Cub Crafters did it on the X Cub for $300K plus.
