    It is nice to see people putting in the time to develop ANY ski.
    It is good for our sport.

    wow that thing is a 4tec 4cylinder
    http://kawasaki.com/product_detail.a...tag=watercraft

    It's also about 2-3 thousand dollars cheeper than a rxp/rxt.
    Looks small for a 3 seater.
    I wonder if pwc go the 3 seater route with beefed up engines.
    I would think going 90 on a pwc you would need a longer hull.

    ...it has a water jacketed exhaust

    Actually the SC model is much more $$$$. Ski + $10,000. (Plus it runs on race gas only.)

    Guy's look forward to the same numbers on the RXP's once Nils releases the new belt driven supercharger.

    Chris Mac Clugage told me he built one for one of his clients and they got 84 under 110 degrees last week.

    And that is NOT just the 10000$ Riva kit, more of 25000$ worth of mods and labor, not mentioning it runs on race gas.

    He didn't seem to be willing to comment on engine life expectancy so I predict it's not the ski's stronger point (my understatement of the day)

    I think all you can get out of a 15F SC while sticking to pump gas and preserve handling, ease of use and reliability must be around 75 with sick acceleration and slot car handling.

    I think it's kind of stupid to spend that much money and only go that fast , I can think of a lot better things to spend my money on ( something that will not loose money fast ) but I guess if your filthy rich it does not matter!

    "only" go that fast?
    believe me WHEN/IF a setup for an RXP reaches those speeds while handling and accelerating like it does and someone offers to build you one it will be in that price range.
