Bouncing which way? Front to back or side to side? Former might need to have the strut adjusted down a bit or angled slightly while the latter would need trim tabs tweeked a bit.

If it boucing up and down. It might be cativating. Try moving the battery foward a bit and maybe some weights on the nose in front of the boat. I would try the weights second but the battery first. Lastly if nothing else works I would use trim tabs. They worked for me. Matt

i added a ton of weight and still didnt work. i did add trim tabs and the problem was solved. i think im running too large of a prop so it was just too hard the bring the bow down without trim tabs.
thanks for the help!

Good to hear that you fixed the problem. What is the size of the prop you are using? Is there any way to use a smaller prop? Matt

That prop I think is slowing down your boat. If I were you I would try a 2 blade it would be much faster than a 2 blade. No wonder why the boat is cativating. That prop is not made for that boat that size. Matt

Nevermind about my last post. It's all wrong. Look at this thread. Scroll down about 3/4's down, it talk about the 3 blade props. I don't know what kind of prop to recommend except a 2 blade prop and don't know what size either. Here's the link. Hope it helps. Matt http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_3231337/tm.htm
