Thread: Taps 3 set up and speed set help

  1. I actually have a bunch of the proper marine plugs so that good. I'll talk to chp about the valves. Thanks again for the help. I do appreciate it.

    So I actually have found that about 35% in the fronts work for me but I definitely feel like I can make the wave longer. I also typically have Taps 3 at 8-10 but from what I am reading on here that is not correct and it should be much lower (so more tab). The problem I run into is if I try to run Taps 3 that low (1-3) my wave is dirty as $%#& at 11mph. If I add more weight up front will that help clean the wave up or should I speed up + add more weight to try and make the wave longer/cleaner?

    Ballast holding water? Did you fix passive draining?

    It is for the most part. I was losing a little bit out the vent lines today but nothing that should affect the wave. I made sure to fill between almost every set and 9/10 times as soon as I started filling she was overflowing so the bags were holding most of the water.

    With 35% in the fronts and 100% in both rears I can typically get a wave with great push but thats with Taps3 at like 8-10. Speed 10.8-11 depending on conditions. What has me pausing is reading that I might be losing out having Taps3 that high.

    Today I tried keeping Taps3 between 1-3 and I feel like the wave lost a lot of it's push doing that...

    I'm thinking about resetting my timers....I know that my rears are way off so I'm wondering if my fronts are too but I'm worried because I can't ever get 100% of my rear bags (and assuming my fronts are the same) to drain so I feel like if I hit reset it will throw the timers off because they aren't empty.

    For me Burn... the settings change once you get the hull buried with extra weight......

    I run taps 3 at 4, taps 2 at 4 and I run the fronts at 60%. I also run the speed to 11.2-11.6 in stock boats.....

    Are you changing both the fill and empty timer slots?

    Should be roughly 4-5 min for the fronts to fill and drain

    9:30 to fill the rears, 10;00 t0 empty I think......

    Gotcha...ill try that next time. What had me wondering if I was doing something wrong was my Taps3 was so much higher than most others. I read an older post you were in and I thought I read that you recommended 100% all round...did you learn that wasn't the best case anymore?

    It really depends on crew...... and whether you are running rear or factory weight. I tune based on running attitude now... 8 degrees of bow rise 4-6 degrees of list

    I'll have to play around and see if my R21 will even give me that info

    The inclinometer on my 2015 Z1 did not seem to function this trip out, any ideas? It just stayed at zero on roll and pitch. I shut the battery off once thinking it would reset the display, but still the same.
