    went 82.1 today

    in some hot ass air (92 today with 85+ degree water temps and 75+% humidity) i am still getting this thing dialed in but she keeps getting faster. i have 31.5 degrees of timing in the ski right now. I can say this there is about a 1mph gain to be had with a solas over a stock prop, i ran 81.1 at ~9000 rpm with the stock prop and ~9000 today with the 15/20 pitched to a 14/18 and it was about as good of a comparison as i could get. i am still slowly dialing the tune tune in but i think she has 83 in her before i get uncomfortable with the tuneup in the heat. if we could get some of the nice cold air back i bet this thing would have gone close to 84-85. tomorrow i am taking a break from this tuning stuff and i am going to just ride

    Congrats, I am sure there is a lot left in it. You have the same setup as I did and 85 in cooler weather is certainly Doo-able. I reached 84.6 mph at 9149 rpm with the ET 137 +4. But timing was 38*. Prior to ET wheel 83.9 but again at 38* timing. A reliable 80 is respectable! Enjoy and glad that impeller worked out for ya. Told ya.

    Nice. You need to spin it to win it (unlike pavement).

    I tried every possible combination with my stock prop...must of had my pump in-out 20 times so far. While stock prop is fine for lower speed goals, at the level we are running these, Solas always wins.

    As I say, bikini season is here and I'm just running a conservative "bikini tune" for the season.

    FWIW: Today I replace all three motor mounts, both rears were separated. Also found stress cracks in pump cavity area

    Welllll.... I guess as you go up in speed it varies. I saw 2 mph when I had the 8375 tune. Did it seem peppier? Pulled harder with the Solas?
