    The lower ptp is contributing to loss of speed not plugs. Generally holeshot picks up as you go up with the motor. I’d try back at 2.75 with 3 large plugs.

    I have dual Talons and have been struggling with my setup. I raised my Talons as high as they would go, yet still have both tightening screws in the tracks and what a difference. May want to check yours.
