    Alan at Jetshed is the man. He did my prop and it was spot on first time. just tell him what you got n he will bend it spot on. Also its a bit more dough but have it set back it helps with hookup and stoping cavitation. R88

    How many rpm's you have to dial in?

    Are you on the limiter?

    Or short of rpm's when on full throttle.

    It isn't that big of a deal to do it yourself.

    Take a look in the How-to section,its very easy.

    i was intending to do it myself but im rather busy at home just now and i cant be arsed being honest.and im sure a guy whos doing it daily will be 10000times better than what i could do.
    i was at 8160 with just a worx grate .and ive just added the 4" kanoflex intake so prob need what 300rpm less?

    I have also the worx grate and the kanaflex on my rxt-x.

    Only with the worx about 8140.

    With the kanflex added 8160- 8180.

    I tested the kanaflex last week was about 30 degrees celcius then in Holland.

    Think i lost some rpm's due to the hot weather!

    My point is don't expect the 250 rpm's you think it will give,just won't happen.

    You'll be lucky with 100 rpm's max.

    First testride ,then start rebending your prop.

    That's my advice,i had the same idears like you before installing the kanaflex.

    Wel i payed £85 for a re-pitch, 3mm setback and postage back to me. Yes you can notice a difference in the sea I ride salt mostly. Makes a big difference in light chop but if its big enough for wave jumping then its gona help you up the wave but nothing helps hookup in the air lol. Speak to Alan about what you want out of it he will explain all. Real good guy. Does props for all the race guys. R88
