Re: Overpropped; What to do?

What did you determine was the max rated rpm of your motor? Full wide open throttle should settle within 100 rpm of that under load, given normal tachometer error. It is possible that your tach is way off though, so if you have the right prop and it is off by a ton, you should check that next.
