    310 closed course questions

    I've been thinking about upgrading to the new 310. I'm sure power wise, with a reflash these will be just that much better in stock class. My concern is the buoy handling. Everyone says that it handles more like the 250 than the 300 in the rough. I wonder if that took away from the better cornering that the 300 had. My 300 turns way better than my 250 did.

    Any one put sponsons on a 310 yet that can compare to a 300 handling wise?

    Thanks

    Can't speak about the 250 but I have a 260 and a 300 that I race and the 300 corners better. The 300 imo corners better with stock sponsons than the 260 with riva's.

    The hulls are the same shape, the cornering and rough water hookup are due to internal changes, stuff got moved and there were some internal structure changes. All handling parts interchange on the 250-310 except the rideplate but even that is an easy fix.

    if memory serves me correctly after a big night on the sauce ,,,,,, I think the intake grate on 300 has bigger bolts than the 250 so it is not a direct fit.....

    Correct waz, also remember stang shorter nozzle will make it turn quicker also pump moving more volume of water.

    ^^^ Disagree. Longer steering nozzle provides a tighter turning radius due to increased leverage. I've noticed with a shorter steering nozzle, a slight improvement in holeshot/acceleration.
