I'd just rather not have the motor recessed the full 3 3/8" into the main BT if I don't have to.

A popular modification is to move the mount back and fly with the F-1 nozzles attached. Additional nose weight, larger fins, clear fins or a combination of these is always necessary to compensate. Too bad there is not a gas with negative mass we can put between the stuffer tube and the outer airframe.
