Default IMCO on 22' Velcity?

Wondering about an imco shorty drive on my boat.
I talked to Velocity about it and they gave me the run around, evetually the guy told me they haven't tested it before. Has anybody heard of any results of this combo?

Also Smoke on water the water would have been alot better without the smoke on the water.

Did it make in difference in chine walk, top speed or control?

I switched from a 3 blade spinelli to a 4 blade lab finished bravo from Velocity. It made quite a bit of difference in the handling of the boat. The boat is still not a sit down and put the throttle down type of boat. You have to really drive the boat. It took me over a year to finally get the trim and a few other things figured out to get the boat to run. Once you find that trim point, this boat just sits back and goes.

I'm doing 92mph on handheld GPS with 4 blade 30 pitch bravo non lab finish. I'm hoping to get my hands on a 30 lab finish to try and get me up to 5200-300 hundred RPM's. Right now I'm spinning at 5100 rpm's. I was running a Hyrdo Motive 4 blade 28 non labbed before and was hitting the rev limiter. I want to get into the upper 90's. When you say two inches below the hull are you talking the X dim?

Thumbs up

Acceleration is no problem, the boats sets you back like like a car when I nail it. Whats the best X dim for top speed? Thanx for your help so far by the way.

K-planes. They are mounted parallel (sp?) to the ground, not with the angle of the V. Not sure if they came on the boat stock or if they got put on with the motor install.
