    So for those who want to completely waste there time with the VTS like I have. Keep in mind the range of motion in the VTS motor is much less than the cable system in the GPR.

    To get full trim down and improve your holeshot the + neutral a hair is going to be about the top on the display.

    On my ski Neutral to a click above is the fastest. I did see dramatic increases in holeshot by getting the trim way down like it supposed to be.

    I agree, It doesn't have as much motion or travel as the stock GPR hand trim.

    Folks.
    Try and mount your attachment rod to the gpr nozzle closer to the rotational point of the pivot, and NOT the stock gpr attachment spot.

    This will provide a much larger range of movement....

    Hmmmmmmmmmmmm. We angle the rod down to get it connected to the trim ring. I think you mean if we extend the connecting point on the trim ring lower we would get a higher range of motion ?

    My head hurts .

    Moving it farther away causes a smaller amount of range but requires less force.
    Moving it closer to the center of the pivot increases range but requires more force.

    It doesn't take much.

    Well it worked ! Dropped the connection point to the GPR trim ring about 1/4" and there is a substansial amount of travel now. No doubt I am getting full trim down and past neutral on the top. Very excited to see the holeshot improvement without the nose jumping up.

    Just a small issue clearing the bolt on the top of the steering nozzle but I got around it (connect to trim ring and then bolt it on)

    Take a 2nd VTS nut and stip out the threads to put it in backwards to use as a spacer...It is the perfect size.

    Danny made me a neat little bracket for the inside if you need a pic let me know I will dig it out.
