Les Cooke ski
I have been hearing alot about Les Cooke and what he has been doing with the RXP down in Austrailia so I was really anxious to have a peek at his skis. He runs a modified stock supercharger that makes insane amounts of boost. He is also running an Autronics ECU to handle the extra power.
Here are some pics of interest.
Take note of his carbon fiber seat/cowling. It retains the look of the ski with the seat cowling on and it is also all one piece and replaces the seat mount. I picked it up and it couldn't have weighed more than 10 pounds.

supercharger air intake is coming off the manifold? i'm confused.... well intrigued i should say...
there's a few interesting things going on in that hull... how did his ski perform?
top pic... check out his hull vent under the glove box... is that a taped on prefilter? or does he have that completely sealed up?

ECU is just a black rectangle about 3" x 4" .... it's a computer chip so to speak that is uniquely programmed for control the timing and fuel curved and whatnot... ski will not work without it and they are costly... as is about 1300 bucks for a new racing ECU
