So I wanted to show some of you guys on here how nasty the water is at Wild Horse pass Motorsports park. AKA "firebird"
It eats aluminum and coats everything in a white film of salt. We run our boat at the river after every pass and put vinegar in our warm up buckets to try to nutralize the ph.
Any way. Enjoy the carnage.

From what I've been told firebird is worse than the salten sea and San Diego 👎🏻 but as a racer we can't really do anything but try to keep that crap out.

Being that the water is that way does it make the engine/boat run any different?
