Took my sponsons off today. Its a whole new machine. Tailslides and 360's are doable. Its not for the rooks though as manuverablity gets a kick in the pants and you need to be on your game with directional power while spinning. At low speeds a tail whip can go into a sideways slide and get the machine perpendicular to the water but you need to turn into it and lay onto the power to get you back up. The tailslides are a blast when the front end drops under water you gun it into the sweet wheelie. Mind you if you want to get into the real fun I recomend sport mode or vtech power to be able to react when things get crazy. It must have been pretty cool because people on the shore line said they never saw a PWC do those manuvers before. Im taking the helmet cam out next time .
