What would be the advantage of a titanium prop?
thinner blades due to stronger material?

Yes.

They would be able to hold up to thinner cuts better than the current forged wheels.

The forged ones are so sweet, but so thin that they are easily damaged.

I'm about to do what you told me and pull off the 16" boxes off the back and then it should be set up right. Just a little late for the Shootout.

Is that the same speed that was on it when you got it from Dave or is that new.

I may need some 7 blades and a rocket.
