    Hole shot Rpm break over

    I have a 2014 Ranger Z520c w/ 2014 250 Evinrude Etec HO. I have a 27p bravo 1xs and removed all pvs plugs to try and get a better hole shot. It has a great hole shot now and it spins fast that it breaks over at 4900 rpms but it get there very fast. I am just concerned that it will spin a hub or cause some other damage to the motor. Normal break over is around 3500-3800 rpms. Any input would be appreciated
    Thanks

    You might contact Mark Croxton (Precision Propeller) to see whether he thinks extra cup would help. But plugging a couple of holes also might be a good idea.

    Put some plugs back in it and tune the spool up rpms. It is adding and taking out plugs till you get the break over rpms to 3900. Time consuming at times, but simple to do. RR

    Have you considered changing props? I’m running a 25” Fury 4 with all holes open. I also added a hole shot plate to my Atlas. I’m very impressed with the performance from this set up.

    What are your numbers with that prop? I am running very high rpms with a 26p fury 3 I was at 6100 rpms @ 70
    Now with the 27p bravo 1 xs I’m at 5850-6000 rpms @ 68.5-69.
    With a 26p bravo 1 with 4 big holes all open ran the same as the 26p fury but the 26 bravo had a great hole shot but 6100-6150 rpms @ 70

    I just ran the boat with just the 1 plug in it and with cooler temps the hole shot should have been better so I removed the last plug and now it’s spinning too high before it breaks over. Maybe I can try 1 med or large plug instead of a solid one
