anyone have problems with it rubbing/scratching up against the back of the tailsection? i installed 2 washers on the 2 back screws between the baseplate and the cowl, and it still touches occasionally. i think i'm going to install the remaining 2 washers and/or try some 3M tape or something back there. annoying...

I had it too, but fixed it. If you loosen the four screws inside the cowl, then pull the internal part toward the back of the cowl while you tighten them, it will make it sit toward the front more. It's hard to explain, I wish I could show you. Basically, you want the black plastic part to sit further back, and the outer shell to sit more toward the front. Therefore, tightening the screws while pulling the black part toward teh back, will make the outer shell sit more forward. Does that makes sense to anyone?

I did that with mine before I even bothered with adding washers. I was hoping that alone would take care of it (Laziness).
