    Farthing

    I'm sure most of you know by now, but it looks like we are losing Dustin Farthing from Team Kawasaki. He is probably the best r/a racer in the world and sure made the Ultra look good. In fact he pretty much talked me back into the Ultra 300 after I went fzr. Not regretting it at all, but it will suck to no longer have him represent us.

    So, besides Craig Warner on the West coast, who will Kawi support in the UWP series?

    Where Farthing is going? SD? Yammy? or just running his own Farthing Racing Team?

    Ive heard speculation polaris is getting back in the game and hes signed up with them, i also heard he drank the RXPX cool aid. I rode the 2012 p-x and it was a turd in the corners. Even the seadoo pros had a hell of a time carving on it at the finals.

    Yamaha better get a new ski and fast because that thing is not good in the rough.
    It does pretty good with a good rider. But yea it's not an ultra.

    I don't deny that the Ultra is in the undisputed king of the rough. But waiting in the wings is that new YAM FX Hull which for sure will raise some eyebrows! The Ultra may have some competition in the rough this year . . . don't be surprised!

    Exactly, looking forward for the new FX, despite the upper deck ugliness... I can't wait to try the hull.
    But nano will still be nano.

    If you reinforced the tunnel no, but had 4 peoples on my island who sank their ski ( 3stock/1modified ).
    Problem is not cracking hull but nano tend to "vibrate" ? Don't know how to explain it, but it feels like it's gonna break... and pilot have to absorb the shock more than fiberblass.

    @75 hours on a Nano hull and I have not had any issues . . . and a good deal of those hours have been at "higher" RPM.
