I would like to get somee more cruise speed. Has anyone with a Zodiac 601xl or 650, made or purchased any mods to clean up the airplane and get a few extra knots? (like 10 knots) Thanks Bob

Zodiac 601xl New Nose Wheel Oleo Strut

Hi, I recently replaced my bungee cord system with the new Oleo Strut. I like it but.... flying it for the first time today, the airplane did not fly well. The ball did not stay in the center. I had to give it constant left rudder. The plane was skidding to the left. (felt like it was out of rigging) I will adjust the rudder pedal cables. Has anyone experienced this? Any solution? Thanks in advance. N602ZA Robert
