    T3 hull trim tabs

    I ran a straight edge across mine and noticed they have a significant drop towards the rear. I know this is how they get frontal down force. Anybody think there might be some speed found here if they ran straight with the hull rather than hanging down in the back?

    I think it is something that needs to be furthur tested because with the GPR guys they found a ton of speed changeing the angles on the tabs and the plate.

    With the riva adjustable tabs if you go up in the rear just barely past the stock location the ski will porpoise above 70

    I was thinking about grinding down the trailing edge a little at a time to try to get them to lie flat and even. Just don't want to mess up the handling OR the tabs.

    the tabs at their current angle from the hull may be replicating the hook and flattening them may be why the boat begins to porpoise as it would on a reg RXP if u remove the hook.........just a thought........BET!!!!!!!

    Have you tried it? Or you think it's a good idea?
