Default RE: make my boat go faster?

First off how fast is it going there is limits somewhat to how fast a boat can go. Its hard to say , have you sharpened rudder and turn fins ? Have you sharpened and balanced the prop? Have you tried different nitro contents? Have you adjusted the trim tabs or the strut? Is your boat running just a little rich? Everything I mentioned can help with speed and also everything I mentioned can slow you down if it isn't correct. I wouldn't expect much more than 40mph out of your SW36. I hope I helped more info is needed to better assist you.
