    Smile rpm/pitch

    i have a totally stock rxp and we have put a brand new wearing and have pitched the standard prop to 10-21 which we fort may be a bit steep but i only way 7 stones so we did it.
    it has awesome accelaration and feels a lot faster top end but its only spinining 7800rpm now but was spinning 8150 before so is it beter that its quicker and less rpms or is there more init
    cheers

    you're making less boost and less horsepower at the lower RPM. take a little pitch out to reach 8100 and it will go faster.
