A few of us have been experiencing a very strange thing that happens when riding the spark hard. We mainly practice racing closed course. When coming into a corner at higher speed, the spark seems to skip a little then all of a sudden roll over with no warning. Most skis when the sliding or skipping starts to happen it will usually just throw you off the side (high side). Anyone else experience this yet.

Not yet because I don't have mine yet, but on another forum, a guy re-drilled his sponsons so they would sit lower in the water giving them more bite. SLASHER's CC build.

Yep, my phone sent this...

Its rolling over on the down side that is closer to the water I'm guessing. That is kinda of a crappy thing to have happen. Hopefully some of the members who have a Spark will be able to give you some advice on this. Let us know if you come up with a fix.

Does it happen often, or only on occasion?

was this before or after you V-Teched your spark? I wonder if a bit of throttle off would help solve the issue?

BTW I found the build Orion was talking about its over on GreenHulk, theres some interesting info going on there for sure!

This sounds like really good advice, something to consider. Which forum is this?

Yea, its happened to me..I found to have more control to better prevent, I stand on the rear of the ski, basically straddle the ski..

How do you flip the Spark back over without burning your arm on the heat exchanger ? If you follow what the manual says I can't see how you avoid it.

While making a turn the rear end felt like it skipped and then caught hard and flipped. I had a passenger on back. I just grabbed the intake rake and it flipped upright. I was surprised no water entered the hull.
