    where did my speed go??

    maybe its a pitching problem i dont know. during the months of august and september i was running @ 72.2 @ 8020/60 rpm. just went out for a cruise to see how it would run in cooler water and my speed was down. 70.1 @ 8140/60 with the same impeller. higher rpm and lower speed much cooler water and air temp. 2006 rxt stage 2 13/19r.

    So you've gone up 100 rpm and down 2 mph? Wear ring maybe? Something causing drag in the water or trim position. Got me, but wear ring stands out.

    yes it was worn a little bit ..have a new one on the way. sent impeller to impros to have it refinished 2 leading edges of the blades have little gauges in them and 3 of the trailing edges were bent upward. i straighted them out the best i could and ran it those were the results.
