I've already drilled three sets of holes for the F-6116 rudder bar mounts so I have some future options if needed.
There is a minimum dimension on the plans, I think, for minimum distance from the firewall. I assumed that was how far the weldment moves in either direction. That said, mine isn't flying and I'm short so I moved mine to the aft hole location. You can also adjust a little by the length of the links and angle of the weldments.
How is ATX? We lived there 30 years. Moved because it became a 100 degree parking lot.
