    Made a bunch of runs today... Didn't get it over 4000 rpm and only 1-2lbs of boost. Decided I HATE the hand throttle.... With the 1.24 ratio and a 30" prop she is not a rocket out of the hole. but once on plane its good to go.. Ill probably try a 28" to see how that helps... Ive got a few things to fix or make better before NYD....
