    Polaris 1200 top speed?

    I got "called out" at a local radar run by a guy with a Polaris 1200. Not familiar with Polaris's at all so I was wondering how fast these things are for acceleration/top speed or how they respond to modifications if he's slightly modified. It's a friendly race I'm just curious.

    I have a stock 08 RXT-X

    I get 56 with my big ass Genesis... so the little pro hull could be an easy 10 mph over that.

    a "Polaris 1200" is a little vague...could run all the way from ~57 to over 70, depending on the ski model and setup.

    That's all I was given. I believe it's mostly stock.

    Can you give more details? Color combo, 2/3/4 seater, etc? It might help us figure out which model it is at least.
    Take a look here at all the models from 2000-2004 it might help identify:

    This was verbal and the ski wasn't at the boat races so I don't know any more than this. It was a friendly race for the halftime show of the boat races so I didn't bother to ask mods or see a color.
