    Man my ski drops speed and rpm in the heat.

    Crazy what a difference in days does to speed, yesterday morning was cool running 8050 and 75.4 mph, today hot hot hot and 7850 was all she would pull dropping to 7800 on a longer run and 71 mph.

    See this all the time, just can't imagine skis that turn big mph in hotter weather how good they would go in our cooler lakes in September!

    You can make your side vents functional and that helps you have to have some vents on back to get that hot air out.

    Do a DIY 160* thermostat it helps.
