Riva Sponson Positions?
Tell me how the different positions work

all the way down for the best handling and all the way up to be able to do some donuts(i think , never tried)

all the way up is straight up crazy and scary... i didn't like it one bit.
all the way down!!! but hey... it's easy enough to switch, so bring a screw driver with u and go ride and pull up to a beach and try all the positions to see what ur into... different strokes for different folks

What was the ski doing that made it scary ?

sloppy and unpredictable and the back end was all over the place at any given moment in even the slightest of turns. if you really laid into a turn at top speed it was all over.... ski could spin around and u'd be sliding backwards with the throttle pegged trying to go forward. It didn't even remotely have ANY bite in the turns
it was fun... for about 3 minutes, until i dropped them back down all the way.
that was my personal findings anyway... and all 3 positions never changed the top speed for me either... dont know if anyone found the same experience as I ?

they won't change top end, just cornering ability...
depending on the brand of aftermarket sponsons, raising them up can reduce drag and increase top end slightly...
having them up or even off will make it feel like a car turning on wet pavement or ice...

Well as far as setting them all the way down, wouldn't that be too aggressive in the turns? Uncomfortably aggressive?
I ask because I've heard the stock ones work fine enough as they are...which is how I'm feeling so far. I'm thinking that more bite will be a little too much bite. Yes, no?
