The trem stays in tune when floating, my point was that if you break a string when playing with the trem floating it knocks it way out of tune.

A local guy told me in the old days of smokey pub gigs he used to set it floating so that a matchstick fits underneath it tightly. It gives you about a wholetone upbend and also means if a string breaks you can quickly set it back.
You could adopt a similar idea of your own.

Who has matches in the era of vaping... Not a bad idea though. My original point was that the Strat sounds better hard tailed.
