Looking for opinions on using mech. tabs on a GPR
I interested to hear some opinions on the pros & cons of mechanical tabs on a GPR. I'm considering using them along with an auto drop nozzle on an upcoming project. I believe the ones I'm looking at were made by bullet racing & attach to the fixed tabs. I'd expect some speed loss, even in the up position, but how much?

Well I haven't found anywhere you can buy them NEW so I imagine if little sh*t breaks, finding parts could end up being fruitless

- Holeshot. With the tabs down, you just go WFO and the ski planes out instantly. No cavitation, no unloading of the pump.
- Stability. When running at high speed and the porpoising starts, you can just pull the lever and release, and the ski is instantly stable.
- Uhhhh... installation? I modified my transom so I can have the manual trim and the mechanical trim tabs
- Springs. I still have not found stainless return springs, so my springs are pretty rusty.

I got my SST springs for my mech tabs at McMaster Carr.

They suck all the way around from what I've heard Mark. If you want I'll try em out for ya and give some feedback in a month or 2.
