A waste of a perfectly good very expensive O motor!
Yeah but it was duly discussed that the nature of construction could not withstand anything of higher impulse. I think they did a tremendous job effecting the low altitude recovery of the three components.
Quite frankly I think it would have been hard to get a larger motor and the construction techniques required to withstand such a motor would have led to an unacceptable weight penalty. Kurt

Their explicit goal was a single commercial motor IIRC, together with longest OAL & Dia.
