    You have the "race" finish.

    Anyone chime in on the "race" finish. You have people saying to polish the rough impellers and to scuff the polished finish. What is the difference and benefits of each finish?

    According to Skat, there has been no definitive distinctions between the two.

    No cavitation on hole shot, much better acceleration, a little slower on top end. To reduce speed loss tweak your trailing edge on the main drive impeller to achieve your max desired RPM.

    Zero difference in performance between polished or race finish
