Default To offset engine or to not offset engine is the ?

DA-50 going on a Carden 30% Extra 300.
Using 3" stand offs giving overall distance from firewall to back plate of 7.2".

Plans called for 1.5 right thrust (1994 power), with the DA-50 I figure 2-2.5 right thrust. I have not glued the firewall yet so I can build in the thrust as needed, but what about off setting the engine????? 7.2" from firewall to backplate and 2.0 right thrust = about .2" offset.

I want to know if any of you put in an offset on engine mounting for this kind of setup????

Forget it [8D]

The more I thought and looked the answer became obvious.
