We run a large tab in our Race AMT. It is nearly never used in race conditions and can make the boat extremely light. I would recommend using it much.

What kind of top end numbers are you seeing? Props? I think I'm getting 14.5 X 32 Merc Cleavers.

15" diameter might work better. Ask the guys who have Spectres.

Ive had better (WOT) results with larger diameter wheels. I was also told by a couple of set-up guys in the application like yours (ours) to spin the diameter first then the pitch.
With that said I have a pair of 14.5x30 4 blades that work very well (go figure)

My top speed props are 15x32 3 Blades.

I have a 2001 30 with 300x's and absoultly love the boat. I have never been in a nicer cat for this size. The boat does hop in the 50 to 75 mph range. I put my tab down in this range to minimize this. It works fine. I do not use it over 75 because there in no further need for it. One other thing the girls love it for getting in to the boat on the sand bar. Just got a pair of merc 15" x 32's l will let you know what I think.

we run 15x32 3-blade cleavers...
in Havasu heat (115 degrees) will run mid to upper 90's, best of 103 in cooler weather.

NO TAB HERE !!
