    GTXL 951 vs GTX 185

    I am looking at picking up a 2003 GTX SC to replace my 98 GTXL. Is there a noticable difference between the two? Does the 900lb weight of the 03 make it less fun than the 635lb GTXL? I ride at 5000 ft elev. Will the forced induction lose less power at this level?

    Well...I have an 04 GTX LTD (185H.P.) Love it..stays with my friends 08 Wake (215 H.P) I ride on Lake Ontario (62-63 mph.. I'm 229 lbs)..(elv. 273ft) Love sking behind it. Very stable platform .but I find I can throw it around quite a bit,too.

    Hope this blurb help you.

    Cheers

    Thanks for the info. I am just concerned going from a 635lb ski to a 900lb one. I know the difference in fun between a 450lb ski and a 635lb one. At sea level, the supercharged only has a couple MPH on the 951 2 stroke. Up at elevation, the 951 loses quite a bit of performance. I would hope with forced induction, the loss would be minimal. This would be my first 4 stroke, and I don't want to make a mistake when playing with several thousand.
