    Ski bogs 500+ rpm in WOT Sweep turns

    Would a slipping clutch do this? The last race I was in was a super course and had a left sweeper turn and @ WOT it would drop over 500 rpm. I've never noticed this before. It felt and sounded like I let off the throttle.

    A custom WB using an 08 mid pipe and no baffles. Pretty much a straight pipe with a small resevoir.

    Does the outlet drop to the bottom of the box or is it just welded to the top?

    I have seen it and put it down to the fact that when you put the steering nozzle in the way it causes a obstruction that is not there when going straight ahead. which inturn raises pump pressure and makes the pump work harder. Im not sure that it would cause 500rpm drop tho so this may not be your issue. R88
