    No in a word lol. Hole shot is a term used to describe how long it takes the ski to get up on plane and out of the "hole" in water it is sitting in. Or in closed course racing it is used to decribe the start of the race so from a standing start to the first bouy would be called the holeshot. What you are talking about is a dounut, and tha farting sound is prob the ski hitting the limiter as you spin and lift the prop out of the water abit. Hope that helps R88

    Ghost is right really the reason for your motor to hit the limiter is coz its cavitating, Does your ski ever hit the limiter at any other time like if you go from idle to full throttle?? If so then maybe your wear ring needs replacing. If it only does it when you are doing dougnuts n stuff then its more likely that the pump sucked in a load of airated water which caused it to cavitate. R88
