    That doesn't make much sense. You usually lose power in high humidity.

    I ran it back to back passes with 2 diferent gps`s,i never tried so hard to reach 75.0, the only little thing i did was filled the 3 bolt holes in my riva grate ,been scared to fill hose. do you think that gave my the difference? got a 1300gpr breathing down my back ,waiting for my RR WHEEL TO GIVE HIM THE 1-2 I NEED...

    Probably the bolt holes filled helped you out cuz mine runs a bit slower when the humidity is high.

    You should fill the rideplate holes too!

    Ain't that the truth... "Mudbug": xx air, xx water, xx% humidity... Stockton: -20 air, -20 water, -20% humidity... 73.1mph vs. 75.1mph

    Environment makes a hell of a difference

    I to question this as I live in San Antonio, Texas where it is always hot and humid.....or so I thought till I went to the bug.. Normally My ski runs around 6960 max prms (Slightly modded 01xpl) in my home town. Now when I went to the bug where is was a hell of alot more humid and not sure about it being hotter but definately more humid I was spining 7100 rpms. So my question is I obviously was producing more power but why? Elevation where i live is around 750 not sure what Morgan City's elevation is.
