I have set rpm limit to 8500 but I can see in stock dash around 7000+
So i think it should not hit limit yet.
No others problem from this sound?

It would also help to keep the trim one click below neutral and keep your weight on the handlebars for the first 10 feet. Then in one motion, adjust the trim to neutral and shift weight to back of seat once on plane. You're not doing your ski any favors shooting the front of ski towards the sky and letting air into your intake grate.
If you watch some videos on youtube of past hydrodrags you'll see how those guys launch.

+1 nailing off the line like that and holding wide open on the throttle will do your engine no good and the clutch will fail in no time if you keep doing it,

You must check your data-logs to know your real rpm, or at least use a tachometer
Video sounds horrible, you are definitely hitting hard on the limiter, you will be changing your clutch soon...

On the rare occasion i race someone from a stop. I start 1 click below neutral with weight forward. After 10-15 ft, i click into neutral and sit back on ski. 30-40 ft I click 1 down past neutral.
