Last weekend we had a District race with five Titan 40s in the P-Mono class. They were very competitive, we can set them up. Some comments on the OP's boat:

1) The stinger height looks okay, my Titan's is lower, some of the other guys' are a tad higher.
2) Probably too much prop. Drop down to a 2-blade and slow the boat down a bit. These boats are tough to keep on the water above 50-55 mph.
3) Add about a pound of lead to the boat at the CG. This counteracts the areo lift and helps plant the boat better.
4) Try the CG at 10" to 10.5"
5) Stinger angle should be set with the keel on a FLAT surface. You will probably need 1 to 2 degrees of down angle at the prop end - no more or you'll have other problems.
6) Tabs....try to keep them above the bottom of the boat. If you can't get the nose down with CG or a little strut movement then try the inside tabs.

Keep trying. These are fun boats and handle rough water better than the ubiquitous DF and CS hulls do. You will get it running well.
