    aaaah crap what should I do?

    Josh and I were all set to go do the base line radar runs on my new VXR this morning so I could start the "green hulk VXR build thread"

    Well, my radar gun isn't working. It won't even power up.

    We already know the ski would run 66.6 mph bone stock.
    So, do I wait 2 or 3 weeks to get the gun fixed just so I can get some base line acceleration curves, or do I start throwing the mods on it today?

    I have sitting here the Riva cold air intake, intake manifold upgrade and rear exhaust.

    You guys tell me what you would like to see me do and I'll do it!

    Mod it now and then when someone around you gets a VXR you can do some stock radar runs on that ski

    Unfortunately no. I can wait a week on the mods if someone has a gun they can send me?

    Perhaps you could chat up the local water police.

    Offer them a ride on something 'interesting' as part of the deal.

    I say wait the 2-3 weeks. 2 weeks is nothing big and we wil have good data for the rest pf our lives on the VXR. It's a long term thing.
