James, you started this thread and asked a lot of questions. That show that you are not "that dam fool".
As you require a 2-seater, why not wait for that Super STOL trike that 'someone' is coming out with this SNF?
In the meantime, extend your strip to 800 feet as planned, get training towards your SPL.
May be your local CFI could be persuaded to attempt some touch and go's at your strip.
Gradiant of any amount would affect ground rolls, in your favor or against it, depending on the direction of take off and landing; which in turn depends on prevailng wind direction.
3 percent gradiant won't be much, if there is plenty of thrust, which is very probable to expect, with a Super STOL trike.
It is in your favor that your strip is dry and not covered in long grass.

Ole, I have made a low pass over a nudist colony. Does that count? I had my clothes on though.
