No, it's 20" mid (longshaft). Have also tried a 19" Laser II, which gave better acceleration, but less top end and still only hitting 5000rpm, but that was with the motor mounted 20mm lower, so it may rev a bit more with the 19" on the current ride height - will have to give this a try. Haven't got any other props to try.

Edit:
Proper bit of thread hijacking here
Yes, but its all relevant to the 5.8 brigade

Fine with me - given lots of food for thought. I have asked JK to relocate it to the engine section where it will be of more accessible.

JK can you rename it Vipermax 5.8 engine & speed issues !
