Great suggestion James! Motor selection is much greater with a dual 18mm motor mount.

I changed out the BT-55 tube with a BT-60 and modified the custom paper tailcone accordingly. I changed out the BT-50 engine mount with an appropriate BT-20 mount and used the cluster wizard to complete.

Although I retained the 48" launch rod, most of these motor combinations easily reach safe velocity withing the standard 36" rod length. Here are the numbers and the additional design file.

Enjoy!
