    Have you done the drags? Speaking from personal experience?
    I agree videos sure don't look like any drop. Or moving parts.

    not being argumentative just asking.

    Have friends that used to race. Attended the drags with them. Never did it myself.
    Its not much of a drop. The skis are just out of the water enough to keep them on the bunks while allowing them to rev up some.

    You clearly see a lever action in that one for sure. Love it everytime I see it/hear it! So want to try it sometime. Not on a pro level, just for fun against friends or comparative skis. They do a bunch of 2 stroke stuff down there as well, loud as hell. Only bummer, the events always rope off all the good beaching for the skis in front of the bar lol Guess it beats having no parking had we driven cars. So many of the world record runs are from that same lake (Dora). Pretty cool. I know we've all seen this one, at least 10 times. 60psi, sick!

    Happy to report good news for those that like to come down to the races in Tavares, FL. As shown above, the docks were wiped out a few years back from Hurricane Irma. Took my TriToon out over the weekend and was happy to see workers have been busy over the winter getting things back to normal.

    Ok, thanks Scott. Its been a few years since I have been. I knew that they got a new launch pad and did not know they did away with the drop feature.
