    congrats ..did you do that on your p or t i assume it was the p ...the feel really light like they are barely in the water when you get a good run...

    i talked to a couple guys from the hydro drags today and they are all adding pitch like mad..

    i hope to get mine out somtime next week and see what it has .i did alot of mods over the spring and summer ..but it was getting hotter and hotter as i was modding...so the heat ..killed the gains..i was just keeping it the same with the mods vs heat...now that it is cooler i ecpect it will take off..

    Thanks. Yes PX. I have seen gains in cooler weather, but I never figured I see this.

    I picked up .7 just between the beginning and end of October on a 15/20+ and went to a 81mm nozzle and still right on top of the stock limiter--

    Thanks.

    Yes, I never figured I get close to the limiter with this prop but....... I need some leading edge pitch also, if you dont launch perfect it wants to bang the limiter.

    Another thing. I always read that in cooloer air you will be leaner. I am just the opposite.
    Last weekend it was alot warmer and I was lean. Today I did not touch the rrfpr and I was rich.

    I ran 80.6 last week with air temps in the 70's and thought cooler air, maybe 81mph. Heck at this rate with a little pitch I might be close to 83.

    Dont really want to add any pitch though, because this is about as cool as we ride and the prop is just about right for that.
