GPRXP's runs 83.8 mph on soda
Seems the 4 techs will still run ok with soda in the tank as are our cousin 2 strokes will not. The container on the left is what I pulled out of the bottom of the tank after fouling plugs and generally running bad. The container on the right is a test with fresh fuel and fresh soda. The soda on the right has the same properties of movement and consistency as what was pulled from the tank. Just goes to show you that you cant keep a conversion ski from running 83.8 mph even with soda in the tank.
P.S. whoever did this being a local with a grudge or one of our group(hard to believe) I hope you rott in HELL. I spent my hard earned $$ traveled 30 some hours straight to have a good time and meet my forum friends. My reward was sabotage.

Nice hammer toe!
Damn! You got hit too? I wonder how many others got it.
It had to be a local with a WR500 still on the trailer or probably a locals nephew or grandson that said "i'll fix them there scooters" for ya gramps...

Joe that flat sucks. Were you parked by Duke? I thought there was security in the parking lot.
I'll bet next year there are a lot of skis that have a gas hose thats unhooked and a cap on the tank inside the hull.
Those are the reasons I always sleep in the back of the truck while you powder puffs go to a cozy hotel room.

Does anyone make a locking gas cap?
I got one for my car mainly for that reason. Don't want anyone taking my expensive gas out and don't want anyone putting CHIT into my tank!
Thats F'd up, and will get them shot if I catch anyone doing it to mine!

Yours was on the same side of the trailer as mine. This is what I get for going to our room and going to sleep instead of going to the bar and drinking and talking shit. Just goes to show how great of a platform you have created. Not even soda can slow us down.

Wonder how many RXP's had soda in their tank, and don't even know it...

Haven't you ridden this ski a bunch since you have gotten back?? Seems like it would have worked it's way through by now..That blows.. I am going to check mine next weekend when I finally have time to mess with my water intrusion. My tank is about empty so I would like to see..
