But you have to admit there are a lot of similarities between sleds and boats....

Both go fast
Both beg to be modified to go faster
You are always working on the set up
You're always putting gas in them
Being dismembered or killed is only one mistake away!!
Both go fast!!!

Up here in the great white north, we have to do something during the winter!!

Foul,

As stated above, check the springs or even the weights. From a stand still does it not engage until 6500 or is it only when you are moving and you get back in the gas? If it is only when you are getting back into it (as you are moving) it is not backshifting properly.

Takes off from a dead stop just fine.... it's when exiting a corner or cruising and then punching it that it has nothing.... I'm not going to have time to look at it tonight, but I'll be checking the springs tomorrow after work.
