Just took delivery of my Deluxe 28 SHO and I installed a mini-tach device to track engine hours (AX306). One of the features is to display rpm and the tach shows 3450 rpm at full throttle which is lower than the rated 3850 +- 50 stated in the LCT literature. Has anyone measured rpm on the AX306?

I've found that many engines I've tested rarely ran at max throttle. Maybe the manufacturing company doesn't set it at max for longevity.Also for smoothness and pleasurable operating. Most consumers don't won't a screaming engine. My Tecumseh 8 hp was running at 3200. They don't think there's nut jobs like us out there that will hook up a tach to it. As long as it sounds good everything is Kosher right, not. Also at what RPM is max torque? I believe some LCT is max Torque at 3400 to 3575.
