Trim tabs?

Just had a quick search through on "Trim Tabs" and am a teansy weansy bit confused. Are they a "good thing" or do they mask a problem that should be corrected in some other manner? I tried to avoid putting under floor tanks in my new toy as I'm never too happy at things I can't keep an eye on. However, I may have shot myself in the foot a little.....
So it's either move the seating and console forward, fit an under floor tank up forward, add trim tabs or some combination.
Thoughts? Off to the factory tomorrow, to discuss with the ever helpfull Andrew and co.
Cheers, Jono (The Slightly Fecked Off)
