Default Viper 500 questions

I flew my GP Viper for the first time today. Man, that plane is quick!! I landed on high rates as the manual instructed, but I think I could have had plenty of ruddervator on low rates. Does anyone land on low rate ruddervator when it specifies movement of 1/8"? Also, would there be any disadvantage to mounting the engine right side up to get the muffler out from under the plane? It barely has clearance to the ground the way the manual specifies. Also, I landed dead stick to keep the prop from hitting the ground. Does anyone know of a manufacturer that makes a carbon fiber landing gear for this plane that is longer than the stock gear? Any comments would be appreciated!
