I have a 96 javelin 400se with a 96 Johnson venom 200. no jack plate motor is in secold hole from top roughly 4.5 inches below pad. I have an original raker 24 with some cup added running 62-64 depending on day and 5700 rpms but I have no lift. I also have a 24 tempest plus that runs 6000 rpms but only 54-55 mph with same load as raker. should I have cup added to the tempest or get a 25 and try it. I have a 25 renegade also tats 6000 rpms ad 57-58 mph the raker has best top end but tempest has a slightly better holeshot renegade is not the greatest all around. I had a 10 inch highjacker pro jack pate in the beginning and have had the motor height everywhere from 5 below to 2 1/2 below and it runs best with no plate set as is.
