Incorrect default Atlantis specs Issue Tools

Incorrect default Atlantis specs
The technical specs for the default Atlantis are incorrect

As a result of trying to help Zach121k with his problem of getting the default Atlantis into a stable orbit, I uncovered that the technical specs of it is very wrong. The orbiter is very overweight and ET isn't honest either (visually it is a Super Lightweight ET, while technically it is a Standard Weight EET used for 6 missions (STS-1 through 5 with a final use on STS-9)).

This the data that we in the SSU project use:

Is there a fix that will update the specs, or a method to do so? Cheers.
