The only negative that comes to mind first. The gyroscopic effect at an added distance will have a growing mechanical advantage on the bearings and there distance apart.

I was thinking about getting a spacer machined out of aluminum but it occurred to me not too long ago that the hub of an old prop would do the same job.... comments? Suggestions?
Think it's a great idea Cory. Will the prop still be on the prop shaft? If it is I say go for it!

Shouldn't be an issue, you can move the prop an arbitrary distance away from the bearings and they still produce the same twisting force.

There will be enough prop shaft left to center the prop but it won't come right through I don't think.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Cory, I would be a bit concerned with sheer in the bolts. Guys were having issues with bolts and CF props. The longer the bolt the more potential for sheer or worse, bending!
