    Has anyone tried running the summits as straight skis? If so, how much better was the performance? I might seriously consider it were it not for the fact that I have to go through the motorized...

    I'm not sure how the brackets are attached to the ski. I don't have the Cub these are going on yet, so I hung them on the wall to get them off the floor. Hopefully these brackets aren't harming...

    I've been flying a 182 with a baggage fuel tank, which was easy. I just burned off the right tank to 2/3rds then turned the fuel selector to right only, turned on the aux pump and that pump refilled...

    Rumor is they had trouble feathering the inop engine’s prop. Looks like they took out some treetops and came damned close to some tied down airplanes. Amazing!

    Sounds good, thanks Stewart! Seems like there isn't too much to worry about. Supposedly the 83" makes 5% more static thrust (1000 lbs vs 950 lbs) than the 80" at the cost of 2-3 mph top end cruise,...

    True, but prop clearance on skis should be even less than on just the 8.50's assuming that the tires will penetrate the surface of the snow.
