    Need Opinions-GPS or JP stupidity problem?

    OK folks, I need help-
    I've been wondering for a while if my GPS is pyscho(Garmin 76 in a GTX box mount).

    (don't forget this is on a RXT)
    S/C Prop RPMs Speed on GPS Boost
    RR 14/19 8400 73.9 unk at MUDBUG
    S3 14/19+2 8400 73.8* 11.5-12.5 at Kissimmee River Ride 12/01/2007
    S3 15/20 8500 73.0 11.5-12.5
    S3 15/19 8250 73.0** 11.5-12.5
    RUDE 15/19 8500 73.0*** 14-15 Today (trued blades, added 0.5 to 2of3)

    *= At the Kissimmee River Ride I was running almost with a S-3 RXp and he was saying that his GPS was showing 78, He was faster, but not 5mph faster.

    **= How can 250 rpms, a trued prop(added pitch), and 3lbs of boost equal no speed increase between the S3 and the RUDE?

    ***= Today with the RUDE, it really felt like I was hauling Arse, but again, the GPS didn't show it.

    Now, the reason I'm wondering is that as each S/C was added, the ski felt like it was going faster, It may be totally psychological, but it SURE feels like it's running faster than it ever has, but the GPS just isn't showing it...

    any ideas?

    thanks
    JP

    That's why I started this post, I'm showing 3 lbs more boost, 200-300 more RPMs with more pitch added on the 3-blade, but no more speed on the GPS?

    It sure feels like I'm flying and I love the RUDE jet-engine sound .

    Borrow someone elses GPS, take it for a ride...

    PLEASE make sure that S3 is stored properly before it gets to its new home

    I actually thought about taking the GPS out of the truck and running it, I just don't wanna get it wet. I just may do that tomorrow before work anyway...

    The S-3 is already boxed up and will go out next week...

    IF you can, just send it when you're ready, I'll do the install, but you'll still have to come down for some 'Danny-tweaking'

    I'll tell you what, this thing feels like it's haulingass...
