The Perfect place for my new project.
Well, it's still in it's infancy but it looks like my next project is going to be dropping my soon to be superstock Polaris 1200 motor into my carbon fiber GSX hull...At this point it's only had some rough measurements but it looks possible...
Should be fun...a roughly 225hp motor in a ski that should way close to 400lbs with everything installed and a tank of gas...
Here are some pics of the donor hull...It's got a carbon fiber hull, rideplate and hood, some funky intake grate, fixed hull extensions, drop nozzle, built in spray deflector, UMI steering, etc...
It's a little dirty but I'm working on gutting it to start mocking up the Polaris motor and pipes to see if it'll work...
If it works ought to be a screamer...Don't think it will be super fast but I'm thinking it ought to be hell in a short race...
It's super dirty and filthy at the moment but hey that's why it's called a project...

Very nice Chris. I can't wait to see this one develop.
Want to "Pop" out the ol' RXP engine next month and see how well it lines up...it might surprise you...

Yeah dude there's so many skis on my carport right now...
1-Donor 2000 SLX
1 Polaris MSX 140
1 Build-up GSX
1 2004 RXP
1 2005 RXP (friends under surgery)...
Normally it's only 3/4 full and a little more organized...

I'm already in the doghouse for all the skis on the carport (instead of Kristins new car)...The last thing I need is another project...

You underestimate the power of the dark side, my young Jedi!
