Default Trim Tabs On Cats?

I was just wondering how many people are running trim tabs on Cats and do they really help out that much?

Showtime Racing, 36' Skater with 525EFIs and Merc VI drives has two 380S K-planes under/behind the sponsons, with no tunnel tab. It works for them.

DocManRich37's former 25 Daytona with a single 525EFI had no tabs whatsoever, and ran fine just like that with drive trim.

you probably won't need them for the most part, but they are nice to have... (i assume you are still talking skater/MTI)

Yeah talking MTI. I am going to try to meet up with 42MTI this weekend and check out his boat and I think I have my wife talked into heading down to Pier 57 next weekend. We were going to head up to Wentzville this weekend but I can't talk my wife into going both places. Have you ordered yours yet and if so what did you get?
