Sure is... My airplane turned out quite tailheavy. After removing the Subaru.

I decided to add a 3rd standby battery on a switch to my critical bus instead of adding lead. Not sure why my airplane is so tailheavy. I'm guessing a combination of the lightweight 360(no mags, carb, or accessories) and the fact that my plane was painted clearcoat.... And lots of it by the original builder.
