    Where do you set your VTS when looking for max speed?

    Just like the title states...where do you guys set your VTS when trying to achieve maximum speed? Assuming the water is flat..what's the best result you have had ?

    Now with a wedge and extension rod, all the way up. Before with no wedge and extension rod, 2 clicks below top.

    you could try different settings while your riding on glass the same day to see where your bests speeds are... fuel burned, rider position will all change things up a bit...

    the "rod" is the linkage between the vts and the nozzle trim ring., a wedge is a wedge shaped machined metal part that makes your exit/venturi nozzle in an upward position angle creating more bow lift... in most cases less hull in the water = better top speeds...
