    To opas or not to opas.

    Looking for some different opinions on opas. I am still contemplating whether or not to block it off. My ski is running consistently high 75 and 76 superman. I do want a little more speed but I am a little broke after the motec for the fzr. Has anyone done back to back runs? What is the disadvantage. I know a good friend racer says he likes the way they handle and never removed them. Just looking for a variety of opinions.

    Anything to reduce drag in the water is going to see speed gains. I dont know how much gains you would see but it has to help.

    People reckon they gain 0.5 - 1 MPH by filling the rideplate holes.

    So gettin rid of them has to help some what.

    Ditch the training wheels if you want to be setup for drag racing.

    JMO, Leave the OPAS on till you are running 81+ on a PX. One time I tried just unhooking my OPAS, gain .2mph maybe doing a back to back test. Putting BO's on a PX makes it overstuff quicker, if you let off the gas too fast. The BOs push the nose down faster when you let off, if you know what I mean. I am running RIVA BOs now, but I am running in the 83-85+ range.

    I think the way the thru hull sounds is better than the freeflow but I dont want to lose opas and spend all the money for the BO's. I guess I need to make sure I can install the TDR box with the thru hull without them.
