Well, after reading all of the post regarding nose wheel fork issues, I decided to order the updated fork, even though after 250 hours, mine still looks good. I have an early build, (120119) but I like to keep up with the changes that make sense. Just received the new style fork. Man, that is one UGLY looking assembly. I'm now arguing with myself about installing it. It's really ugly, and I don't think paint is going to help.......Tom

I'm very curious how you don't get a prop strike when the nose gear collapses? Was it a partial or gradual bending?

Only the fork "collapsed." The gear leg remained intact but threads were damaged.
