race between 07 vs. 08
Finally I had chance to compare two totally stock ultras...to compare them we race agains each other my self and my friend 07 vs. 08
07 my ski (20 hr)
top speed 63.7 mph GPS
08 my friend ski (7 hr)
Top speed 64.6 mph GPS
as you can see the differance is less that one mile, we swap the skis and got same results
I notice that 08 has almost same acceleration untill 35 mph after that he pass me about one ski lenght
the water tempreture was 70 F and it was rough and windy, ambient tempruture 86 F
guys I think you r lucky out there your stock ultra run 65 plus our run slower
don't ask me why..I'm still searching for a reason
I found a cause what may slow me dawn, my ultra still has the sticky plastic from day one of delivery I try to remove it but a big area is still covering the underneath of ski hull
I'm just guessing because his was clean no any remaing plastic
dealer desplay piece mine come out of box to my trialer

Mine 07 was also a very slow one,63-64 with 2degree wedge!
ride plate,air intake,exhaust and bov block off took it to 67@7600rpm.
till this day i never found out why it sucked that much.sold it and in 2 weeks i am getting my 08.hope i get a fast one this year...
I have something in the back of my head,how did u break it in?

It seems apparent to me that high humidity is more of a speed killer than the hot weather. During the dog days of summer here in SC, we have very high humidity during July and August and really takes a toll on my ski.

I do not see major improvement in 08 to encorage me to sale my 07 and get 08 I rather hope to midify it..moreover I like the blue/silver color combination of 07 and 08 likely is the same if you do not have major problem of OIG , I tested 08 only what make me put a big and is the faster time for 08 to get from 35 mph to max speed I got there faster the acceleration for 07 in much harder below 35 mpr these are all personal observations sorry for 08 onwer not all ski are the same maybe some are faster that other regardes the year 07 or 08
