I have had that happen occasionally. Once I ran off a banked curve and when someone picked it up it went to full throttle. It didn't come back until he lifted it up high enough the bank wasn't...

In theory you actually would have to lean it out a little to keep the same tune but just tune it like you normally would. If you aren't comfortable tuning by sound/smoke/etc. then I would be sure to...
