    Green Hulk tops his best speed ever today!

    I must say, learning to pitch my own prop is the best thing I ever did. I went out and nailed 76.6 this morning, but my RPM's were still down to 8300. I brought the ski home, took a bit more pitch out the prop and went back and ran high 77's all morning with a best of 77.9.
    I think i took a tad bit too much pitch out of it as im banging the limiter at times so I had to trim up to the point where my RPM's dropped off slightly to prevent this.
    I tried like hell to break 78, but I had a horrible cross wind and i couldn't track straight without putting a little pressure on the handlebars.

    I think if i put a tad bit more pitch in it and I get a nice calm day i should see 78+

    Tat's great news jerry!! congrats. I'm trying to learn how to fix my prop as well. Doyou take pitch out of the leading edge , or the trailing edge to gain rpms? I may be buying that pitch tool as in the near future

    Thanks guys!

    Psycho, you just change the trailing edge of the prop. I was told not to mess with the leading edge.

    Man, this is starting to get fun again

    Cool , I'll try that. I did a check to see if all 4 leading edges were the same, and found 2 off by a little. If I get all 4 the exact same , Then I'll try a litle less pitch to gain a few hundred rpms on the trailing edges.
