Maybe I'm in the minority but I have never dunked the nose of my MC since day one, are you guys wiping around into your own wake and dunking? If someone falls I throttle off in a straight line then pivot in place, never hit my wake because it's past me by then....
Yeah it may take a few more seconds to get back to someone but it beats throwing rollers all the way down the lake from powerturning.
