    Torque roll ?

    I am having a bad torque roll to the right at full speed. I have stock trim taps on the outside, adj. tabs on the inside. 5" rudder and the strut is level. I have adjusted the right tap down slightly, but still getting the roll. I read some place, to put a washer on one side of the strut mount and that would help. What are you guys doing to help the torque roll?..........any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Would steering trim (too much right) be the cause?

    Drop the right tab further and trim the strut up a little bit.

    WOW. you have torque rolls with a 40mm prop? What motor? The motor can easily do it, as in my case with a Leopard 4092, I have done a full 360 roll multiple times . Thankfully the larger rudder enabled the boat to right itself.

    Thanks for the input. I'm running the stock Spartan motor. I am going back to everything in a neutral position including the stock prop and start over again, changing only one thing at a time.
