That is amazing, Jim had Johnny switch the drives on Freedom 1, to turn out, before he sent it back up here.He said it would be faster but I never thought it would make much difference. Have you done any testing on your new MTI as far as prop rotation. Even though mine is a big SUV, I'm stilling wanting a little more.

This isn't the answer I was looking for Dave.

The best thing I can advise is that you try these changes on your boat. Since each boat is different, it's the only sure way to tell what works best. But whatever you do, be careful when making setup changes and then testing. Always approach the boats limits very carefully because with all good results usually come some bad. Good Luck!

I thought when you edited this maybe you were going to give me some inside tips, ha ha. Anyway, thanks for posting back, I think I may just order a new sit down MTI for next yr. That should pic me up a little, If I can get a deal from woods.
