I always balance at the suggested cg, but with the P-40 the gear swings back behind the CG enough that with the 4" robart tires I am using the plane will cause the cg to shift back enough to make the tail touch the ground while suspended from the vanessa rig. That is a significant change in balance. Your right if using foam wheels which weigh nothing.
