I'm curious to know if there's any limitations to motor size in rockets and if so what are they beyond physically accepting the motor and build strength. I'm new to HPR and just received my Level 1 with a Public Missiles Quasar, it was a fun rocket to build and I learned a lot. But now I'm contemplating doing a 2.0 version where I use glassed phenolic rather than the quantum tubing and a few other improvements. Their data sheet calls out various recommended motors and advise that with the biggest motors build strength is critical. Yesterday I did a little research and found that it can accommodate some even larger more powerful engines than their suggested motors. I like the idea of pushing it eventually but am wondering what if any are the down sides? I noticed that many rocket manufactures don't even suggest particular motors which leads me to believe choosing them could be part of the fun. Thoughts?
