    Heat and/or Humidity

    I noticed yesterday that when it got hot in the engine compartment my speed did drop. As most already know that the first run will be the faster. My first run I got a 66.7 then after ridding a little I tried again and only got 65.6. My high rpm's were 7600. This was done as the buzzer had just gone off. Have a great weekend.

    I'm hoping to get out this weekend, I see another tropical wave in the Carribean so not sure what it will be like here. If conditions are right, I'm going to try to make a few runs, some with the seat off to see if there is any difference, one more air, and two, to see if the cooling of the engine compartment has any effects. If there is no difference I'm not going to waste a lot of time or money on an air intake.....
