Looking at the picture you have a Imco -2 or -1. Thanks for the picture. I think I need to lower my X. To get where you are. I am going to take a measurment from the notch.

I see you do not have the nothced transom. The bottoms or installed heights are differnet, what year is yours? You have an X 1.5" with a ITS and -1 Imco etreme, My X is 3" with the same ITS and drive with a -3 lower. I was going to try a -2, I have but looks now like that will be going the wrong way. And to rig for the 1.5 X I believe I will have to reglass the transom, and mount it higher. Another winter project.
I can drive (ballance) it on the pad, but should not have to.
Maybe Plumbers Crack will chime in, it was his boat. He might have some words of wisdom. I would like to know if he had simular issues, or used a different prop. Maybe someone changed things after he bought it.

Mine is a 2006. No notch in the transom. I just cant see how you would need to go any higher if you already have a -3. How big is the notch? Your drive is 3" below the bottom of the pad at neutral trim? yours must have been rigged differently for some reason. Plumber Crack would be the one to ask.

I just measured I am 3.25" from the bottom of the swim platform. If yours is @ 1.75 or so that is the differance. Mine is mounted lower, hence the -3 shortie to get the X as low as possible considering the installed height.
With this informantion and some more thought. the excessive trim sensitivity and stern lift would be caused by the drive being too low in the water, to much leverage. The farther from the bottom the more a response to trim and other factors.
Any sugestions besides a re glass on getting my X higher?

You could go with an extension box with rise in it. Imco has a 3" and Stellings has an adjustable one.

So you have 2 29 Kryptonite's now?
