If you layed wood and then carbon fiber under the engine I would check your clearence as the top on mine hit with the pull start assembly on the OS .18. The glow plug melted a tiny hole between the drivers pits. Dont know how much taller that engine you are using is.

As an update, I went back to the original strudder. Havent had any issues running the OS .18 and a proboat carbon prop. Rips hard all day long!!

Hijacker, errr Bob.
The trick is to get it halfway between the strut and the sponson if you can otherwise try for as close to the prop as possible without it hitting the prop.
A rule of thumb for rudders is if you shorten them try to keep about 1" below the prop, the blades themselves, not the centerline.
