    Bigger motor, bigger hull. SLTX has a 14.5 gallon tank. If you are running the thing around for 4 hours thats pretty good. If the 900 is going 5 hours, there is probably something wrong with it where its not performing to its full potential. I can maybe go 2 and a half hours on my 900, and thats without shutting it off.

    How much are you on the throttle? If you are trying to ride it like you ride the 900, you are probably using a lot more throttle to get similar performance.

    97. I think the acc. pumps are causing the excess fuel consumption as I like to wave jump and as a result the throttle is getting varied alot.
