    Default Hole Shot

    What are some of the ways to set a boat up for a good hole shot? Weight and the size of the impeller seem the most obvious.

    I dont know the answer but i bet it differs depending on your application. Some real smart guys on here. Give as much detail about your ride as possible and they will give you some good advice.

    Big Impeller. Inducer. Less Weight. Diverter Down. Open Loader.

    Will an inducer hurt top end? Is there any negative to having one?

    Not at all. There are some made that I don't have any experience with. I know for sure that the ones from D.P.S. will not hurt top end.

    i have been experimenting with jay from MHP in mesa and we have been having good luck with my little boat. i had a center blocker with a droop and it really hurt my hole shot. now we went to adjusting the ride plate 2 degrees up with full open loader c impellar 3inch id nozzle with srtaight snoot witch had 4 degrees in it then added 6 more derees of wedge. it is just all trial and error evry boat is different.

    We are all stuck with the weight of the boat, not much you can do there. The biggest things are a well blueprinted pump, a good shoe,bottom and more imporantly loader combination. Applying just the right amount of power that the pump can handle and one of the biggest things is gettting the boat up and clean without draggin the boat up onto plain or without bouncing all over the place trying to take a set (place diverter with up and down stops is key here)

    see im 16ft so i have to do things different but i have noticed some guys with 19fters use a 2 step relay on there pumps and man those guys come up on plain and move where i have to burp the motor roll the boat over and just when the nose starts to come down nail it and at the same time hit the nos and it takes a great set and runs strong. i got to play with it at parker this last weekend with blown jet 13 and with all his expierence he really helped a lot with showing me how to really run this boat and for that im greatfull. hats off to you jay

    JDG911, We saw you Saturday. We were up at Riverlodge with a white and red CP and a light blue flatty. We saw you go up and down, but didn't see you the rest of the weekend. Was nice to see a few Hot Rods on the strip.
    Sorry about the jack thread. But if hole shot is what your looking for MPD is my answer.
