I decided to look at this on our Icon. I can make the LiPo stops the same as in the photo by loosening the two screws, moving them and re-tightening. Looks like it is just a matter of making sure...

Alloy pivot parts are worth it as it possible to get the pivot 1mm lower than the plastic one, that is how the UK team runs it. Get the pivot spacers as well. Don't use the washers that come with it,...
