Contact Point Settings

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Aircraft was modeled with FSDS for FS2004. When viewed in FS, The main gear was burried in the ground about 1/3 of the way to the axle. Nosegear was also burried so that the tire was buried up to the rim. I also noticed in slew mode, the whole fuselage tilted so that the nosewheel was clear of the ground by about two feet. when leaving slew mode, the nose slammed back down to where it originally was. I reset the contact points so that the main gear tire bottoms and nosegear tire bottom is just barely below the ground level to produce a very slight flattening effect. Now when going into slew mode all seems ok till you escape slew mode then the aircraft takes off like a scalded hog.
What other setting needs to be ajusted to correct this? Here's the contents of the contact points section of the aircraft.cfg file exactly as they appear.
Note that the parts commented out with "//" are the original settings. I did this so that I would be able to get back to the original if needed.
