    GP1200R

    There's a GPR around the corner for sale. I want it but then again what would I do with it? It's on a double trailer with an old ski from the early 90s. I forget what year yami made the black and purple 1200 but that's what it is.

    Anyways....

    Does anybody know what the status is on mike and frank's 300hp?
    &
    How about nils belt driven sc?

    Is there a possibilty for the RXPs to put a beat down on the fastest GPRs at MUDBUG? or has the technology not been invented yet?

    Here is the issue to me.

    A gpr can be made to run faster!

    But NOT for me! Why do I say that, well it is simple, I do not have the time or the knowledge to tune it. There will be only a hand full of gpr's beat a RXP and they will be the ones that know how to tune it and have the time.

    RXP's will do 73ish with just bolt ons and you dont need to tune it in.
    Well the prop maybe.

    The RXP's won't own the crown of fastest ski at Mudbug in October, but there is a darn good chance we will own the crown at the June Mudbug. Nils belt driven supercharger should be available by then.

    Put that modded RXP engine in the new GTi hull and I will put my money on SD taking the title from Yammi ha ha.

    I agree Rich. Im thinking hard on this. The MSRP on the GTI is pretty darn low. I could buy one and sell the brand new motor out of it and then drop my RXP goodies into it.

    You could put the 130 in your RXP and then sell it to somone who wants to look "fast" but doesn't want the headache and excessive fuel consumption to go with it. Perfect ebay item !!

    Then you would really know the difference in hulls if you benchmark the gti first then put the engine in the rxp.

    Does anybody know how much money it usually takes to put a gpr 1200 or 1300 in the 80+mphs?
    &
    Is there a difference in what you have to do and buy to tune the different models?
