    Another polaris win

    I raced the Pro 785 limited this weekend and had a blast,
    on Saturdays race I placed 2nd- 1st- 2nd
    on Sundays race I placed 2nd-3rd-1st
    I blew out on one race, I got behind and was racing like I stole it, and got launched over the handle bars like superman, it is so hard to swim in full race gear and a helmet, then with no back grab bar it was a bear trying to get back on the ski,

    My biggest problem was the auto drop nozzle,
    I had it adjusted to about 1* up in straight line mode, but on some turns to the right, the ski would just Plow and go straight, I tried everything from feathering the throttle, to slower, faster, but every now and then, I couldn't turn right very well, and it cost me 2 first place finishes,

    If I can't get it figured out, I am goint to take of the auto drop set up,

    I will post pictures tomorrow,

    most of the other racers are using the old seadoo's with the 787's twin cylinder with single pipe, I lifted my seat while watiting on the start and one of the new quys was in Awe at the tripple pipes, I can't seem to get my RPM's up very much, I can only top out at 7700
    and go 58 on the gps with the drop nozzle,
    of course the only time I go wide open is on the start and the one straght away, but I shoud be able to get more rpm's?
    I am running MS103 fuel with the ADA heads, I have a Worx grate, should I go back with the r&d?
    thanks,

    i found on my pump nozzles that the steering nozzle will bottom out (on the right side) and not allow the ski to turn as hard in that direction.had to clearance my trim nozzle and my extended one.the bilge siphon bumps on that side on the pump nozzle are what was inteferring with the range of motion
