In my quest to get a bit lower I took off my top stage, pulled off my gimbal, turned it upside down and then put it back on the post.  Didn't actually gain anything out of it.  Bottom of gimbal hit the topstage before I could get a decent drop time.  I may have gotten only slightly lower by an inch or two.  I had heard an op talking about this once.  Anybody else try this with any success?

You're not changing the weight distribution top to bottom so you wont gain anything
