Default Miss Bud 1/8 scary problem

I'm having problems with Bud. When is gaining speed she start to raise the left ponton from the water and because this frustrating behavior I'm unable to reach top speed.. What I have to look to correct this problem.

Just my experience, but when the "Bud" is at speed, you cannot turn to the left. As you come out of the corner into a straight, you can give it just a touch of left to get it to lift out of the water and get back onto a good plane. But mine will not turn left at speed at all, like you said if you try, the boat will lift the left sponson off of the water. My 2c.

Try shifting some weight to the left side to counteract the torque from the prop.

A more radical solution could be to raise the angle of attack of the right sponson, (steeper), for the same effect.
