    Ultra LX instantly dies in violent manuever?

    While getting crazy trying to spin this thing out at low speed useing boat wakes to stab the bow into and unhook the tail it just flat dies. Starts up instantly like nothing happend. Is this some feature that is trying to protect the motor in a rollover, activating too soon? It could get annoying. Anyone else have this happen to them?

    WHAT?.........(LOL!) I am a old fat guy pushing 50, all you young riders out there have to be more aggressive than me. Truth be told I even had my son on board with me so we were way upwards of 350lbs of passengers. When it flat died we were almost sliding backwards down into the trough of the wake. With no power it almost felt like were being sucked to the bottom as all the wakes converged on us at the same moment. I will try it again but not with my son onboard.........well that might make him mad as he loves those kind of manuevers. We were just trying to make it spin like the old Polaris we also have.
