    Keagan It's just a 1/4 inch flex ratchet that I got from Harbor Freight and a 1/4 inch socket with a 2.5mm Allen bit installed in it from ebay. The cost was around $20.00 for everything, but you may already have a flex ratchet that will work. I got the fine tooth ratchet so it don't take much room to ratchet it versus the large tooth ratchets. Below are links to what I used.

    First run of the season. Had the struts set at about 2.5mm with ABC 1814 props and 4 3S packs. Had a little too much hop on the first run and never really got many WOT passes. GPS read 67.5mph. Took out the HRB packs and put a set of Revo's 70C graphenes in. Second run was better, smoother down wind, but still not a lot of WOT because I didn't want to flip it today. I did flip it pretty good once, more of a sideways cartwheel, and landed business side down. Ran 71.6mph, but the temps came back really warm. The motor connectors melted the hatch foam and there was a lot of smoke, on both runs. It was alarming at first, but I knew as soon as there was no smell, it wasn't the electronics. I borked one of the struts on the flip to nearly full positive trim angle. Funny, I didn't really notice it much on the few passes I made after the flip before I brought it back. Next trip I'll use an air dam and run the struts at 3mm.

    my first flip was with ABC props... never happened with other props at higher speeds...
    anyway what do you mean with 3mm? 3mm from the "table"? neutral is 4mm from the "table"... so 2.5mm is better of 3mm to bring the nose down...

    I've flipped on all props. It's really not that hard. My strut measurements are taken as illustrated in the manual. Yes, 3mm will run the bow higher, but that's not why I'm making the change. I want less prop in the water to bring the temps down a little and I'll be using an air dam to reduce air pushing up on the bottom of the tunnel.

    Everythig is clear! Thank u so much!
    For same reason, less prop in the water, i leave stock 4mm setup..
    I change balance moving the 2 6s lipo packs: in the center of batt tray boat is not so wet and drag when close gas is so low... But i am scared by waves and wind...
    So i move packs a little bit under the hood... I think it is the best solution... But drag increase so much... So at half gas boat is a little bit slower...
