    Trim Tabs!

    Alright so I decided to try trim tabs. I polished and cut a set of R&D tabs. They look great.

    Now do I just bolt them up flat or should I angle them or what? Also can I run more angle on my plate when I run the tabs? Right now I am running .940ish with no tabs and it sucks in the chop. All I can squeeze out mph wise on the chop is 68.8 mph. On nice water I can go 72-73 mph.


    Any info would be great!

    I hate it when I race RXP's and I kicking their ass and then I start to bounce because of decent chop. Makes me lose! Then I take them to some flat water

    I cut them to match the stock tab length.

    Not sure about thickness, but on the stock ones there are endent lines. The R&D are metal of course and flat.

    A cut set of these are supposed to be the fastest.

    the stock ones are faster and thinner, start with zero washers and work your way up till the bounce is gone..........

    I don't see how they could be. Since they are not flat and you can't bevel the front I see them as slower for sure.
