    SHO Learning mode

    Would adding an adjustable bleed off valve give you the ability to adjust performance with a simple adjustment?

    I would like this for when my friends/girlfriend borrow my ski. now that I hopefully will be pushing high 70s this summer I dont want to hand the keys over to inexperienced riders. I think that this would be a viable option to adjust the performance w/ the turn of a screw.

    or maybe run a wastegate on your intercooler/intake piping? put a 5-6lb spring in there, run a boost controller, that way you can 5lb or so when someone else is riding it, and go to your full 15lb or so when you are riding.

    one thing you are going to have to deal with is prop pitch though, it will run like shit with a big prop and 10lbs less boost in it.

    just buy a POS wave jammer for the friends to ride, lol.

    Get a standup and give that to them. Not letting anyone ride my red ski.

    I've found the standup separates the weak from the strong.

    You're more brave than me.

    What about a $5K deposit?
