Nice, do you plan on doing any competition or just for fun.
im going to compete in a 1 or 2 competitions. drags, and maybe oval runs. the guy driving the rmk got 4 place in the oval race last year..

a 1" track will work. i used it last year [:)]

well, i strapped down the front shocks. changed the front shock in the suspension to a stiffer/longer one, set the rear limiter strap to tightest position. sealed all cracks with silicone/ tape.

removed seat, headlight/guage console, gas and oil tank. replaced the with smaller ones,

waterskiping is always a rush :D

ive done some more testing and adjusting. the top speed was 75kmh measured with gps, its not great, but a good start.

i almost went down once, the sled suddenly died. i think it was a pinched fuel line...

no its not, its a 440 so it only has the rpm gauge, and the speedo place is covered by black plastic, he has a sticker on it, making it look lit up :p
