    An OPAS thought....

    For the racers out there who are not allowed RE or PRO block-offs in Stock or Limited classes would it be possible to lock the OPAS in the straight position,

    Would this give better performance/handling than removing the OPAS altogether?

    This I assume would be a legal mod as the OPAS is an original piece of hardware on the ski?

    Any thoughts please?

    I've seen racers on closed course tracks use the opas to their advantage.

    Its not for me, I've ridden an RXP around the bouys with OPAS and its not nice,

    So would locking the OPAS work?

    Actually, IJSBA has just updated a couple rules, it is now legal to run the RIVA pro series block offs in stock and limited.

    Thanks I was not aware of that, perhaps i'll get a set as my OPAS was already removed long before I had my RXP.
