Vector Performance part II

Hello again I was thinking about what I just wrote to you about my 1982 vector w/johnson 200, the boat runs best with the 24 raker and I can feel the hull break away, how bout some set up info for the raker and the choppers too, will the engine height be different for the raker than the big ear chopper? propshat to bottom of boat? I donít have lwp,  

Thanks again

Tim,

No matter how hard we try, your gearcase as it is, is always going to be a huge compromise.  A noseconed gearcase with a torque tab is the only way to fly.  Compare it to having really bad tires on a Ferrari.  They may work, but it doesn't seem to handle very well.  Go for the trick radials and get the coned case.
