Sounds like your slide rails were heating up, or your clutches came out of alignment, from stress of racing. Could be a lot of things like engine temp even. http://www.snowmobileworld-s2.com/forums/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sleepy.gif

Could also be that after that many passes your clutches got heat soaked, that would slow you down.

i had about 20 mins between races everything should have been cold , she may have come out off line the clutch i was running her a little high on the rpm waiting for the start i really lost all the power i had and i could really see it easy how much speed i had lost

Check your rings. * I burnt the chrome off my rings at the end of the season. *I went from winning to losing that quick. *Usually when you hit a dead spot it is rings. * Worth a try.
