Hi Wayne,

If you have a lack of grip from a standstill this could be the prop ventilating through the little holes in the hub in front of the blades. I experienced this when fitting a Lazer II to my Searider - it feels like wheelspin.

However it's easy to fix. Mercury can supply little rubber bungs to block the holes - no more ventilation and much better acceleration. AND the bungs were only 30p each - must be the cheapest Quicksilver part available!
