    Question How are your skis running with this heat wave?

    I'm not at the lake right now, but I just checked the RAD and it's 3,677ft. Actual elevation is 1,150ft. above sea level. This air is terrible for putting up numbers!

    My ski is running decent. Its only down about 50 rpms and less than 1 mph from peak but it does'nt accelerate quite as hard as normal. The RAD here last weeken was over 3000 and I am at sea level. I expected to lose more than I did but I guess thats the nice part about running a stock ecu. A couple of my buddies running aftermarket ecu's are down more than 200 rpms.

    I was down 50 RPM last weekend when the RAD went to about 2800ft. At 2500ft. or less I can still turn 8100 RPM. I can only imagine how I'd be running if I was out today. I like my stock ECU too. I don't want to mess with the valve springs. And with the ski being an '04 I don't want to mess with the flywheel bolts or weak valves either.

    Considering I'm just south of the 45th parallel.........yes. Heat wasn't my point. The RAD was, and how this "heat wave" that everyone has been talking about sweeping the midwest and south has been affecting it.
