Adjustable sponsons questions
Would the least aggressive setting on a sponson give the rear of the Ski like a walking left and right feel at higher speeds with light chop, wakes? It seems like either my bow is too high and it moves the rear left and right or my sponsons aren't down enough. Thanks

At WOT the sponsons probably aren't in the water at all, even if you have them set down. At cruising speeds you might notice a little less stability though. I tried setting my Macc sponsons further forward to see if it would make the ski a little quicker reacting & noticed it started doing what you described at 50-60ish.

I've got TBM's on my fzr set the most aggressive... I was sort of disappointed when I ripped the steering full lock and didn't get launched off it just turned on a dime and I'm no meat head bench presser. I thought mac and tbm were the best you could get for aggressive.
as mjh3ides said they aren't In the water at full noise.

I don't know what sponsons you're running but I had Macc Racing ones on my FZs. I didn't get sliding but I could only get the hull to turn if I chopped the throttle to set the bow, apply lock to the bars, and then get on the gas again. I had stock HP and it didn't turn as hard as I wanted. My opinion is that it is just not a good boat for "hard turning"- there's just too much loss of speed with the heavy load a turn puts on the motor. Take what you want from my observations.
