Default RV-14 Taildragger Wheel pant clearance and grass Ops.

Wondering if anyone is operating off of grass in there RV-14 with standard wheel pant clearance. I only have about a 1 1/2" clearance behind the wheel pant to the ground which has me wondering if that is adequate for grass operations. All other taildragger models seem to have considerably more clearance. I believe I built them to Van's specs.

Glen, you should be fine with the Vanís dimensions. My Rocket pants are much tighter then that and I have been 20 years on grass here
