    It's a great Idea and 80 should not be a problem.

    My concern would be the capability & design features of the old style pump.No one really knows what the mph limit would be,considering the pump design looks like its more efficent at lower speeds and midrange,which I think is "PART" of the reason the Raiders had such a good holeshot,and possibly why it was so hard to get that last few mph out of them.

    I talking to Tim Judge there is a ton of speed left in the Raider hull ,(IF) the rider can pull the throttle far enough.........(after serious mods)......a ported GPR 1200 or a full race ,tripple pipe 1200 in 94 hull would fall into this catagory...oops.I said fall......I will be happy when my ski tops out at 65/66

    BULLRAIDER, your not going to have any trouble hitting 65-66, I think you will be knocking on the 70mph door.
