100% agree. I jokingly tell everyone that my RV-4 is my little 1.5 seater...

I went for a ride in my own airplane (no throttle or rudder pedals in the back) with a friend who's looking to buy a -4. He was 240 pounds (solid muscle...) in the front and I was in the back at 200-ish and half tanks. It was "sporting" to say the least. Not something to make a habit of. Did a few rolls, but that was it. I just told him to make sure to keep it coordinated.
