    So they put a 450 hp motor in a 150 lb cf hull and went 92 mph... There are guys runing faster with full dressed fzr's. Thats not really all that impressive... Just saying... And the ski looks like an XL..

    Indeed nice, but only 90mph, don't we already have small shops doing 100mph?
    I've never understood how you can use a different hull and still call it a production ski name. As little is left of this being an FZ you could just as well call it a SHO, Superjet, Honda, etc.. Seems deceptive to me.

    More like 125. Picked one up a couple weeks ago and it was pretty easy. Made El Diablo feel like a slug.

    Upper deck just has to look like OEM. There will be some wicked quick skis this year.

    8.2.2

    Aftermarket hulls may be used, on watercraft homologated in numbers of
    500 or higher, in classes which carry Expert and Pro designations. Top
    decks must be the original OEM top deck as supplied by the manufacturer.
    Hull and deck repairs may be made. However, these repairs must not alter
    the standard configuration of the top deck by more than 2.00mm (0.08 in.).
    Hull, bulkhead and deck may be internally reinforced. Fasteners may be
    installed through the hull, bulkhead and deck for the purposes of securing
    components to interior surfaces, provided a hazard is not created. Other
    than for the use of fasteners, the bulkhead may not be modified. Glue
    squeeze-out may be removed from the hull.

    This rule applys for closed course but I dont know if hydrodrags fall under ijsba rules.


    I think hydrodrags are APBA

    26.4 AFTERMARKET OR MODIFIED HULLS
    26.4.1 Aftermarket Hull Classes: The following rules apply to the Expert
    Runabout Open and Pro-Am Runabout Open classes only. All other
    classes must run a stock OEM hull.
    26.4.2 Hull: The hull may be modified or aftermarket but cannot exceed the length
    or width of the original equipment upper deck component of the bond
    flange as measured by a plumb bob (bumpers removed). Fins, rudders,
    skegs and other appendages that may create a hazard are not allowed.
    26.4.3 Deck: Original equipment deck must be used. Deck repairs may be
    made, provided they do not alter the standard configuration by more
    than 2.00mm (0.08 in.). The deck’s bond flange may not be modified.
    Deck may be internally reinforced

    28.2 GP SKI RULES
    d. The hull, including upper and lower deck are free but must stay within
    the size dimensions of the APBA “Ski Division” rules.

    Hell yeah I cant wait! I just hope everyone uses their head and is being safe.
    Now its like every ski is on the 90s easily. I feel 100 is going to be an easy task this year.
    These motors are creating big power and spinning huge rpms, with what, a piece of foam and plastic off the seat and cf or fiberglass between you and your motor. Its not even ouch if it blows. Its more like collecting pieces of your leg or body.

    Be safe have fun. Hope to see some forum members names in the magazines for breaking records!
