    building an all out drag ski.

    So I have officially been hooked on these things and never thought I would even consider what I'm about to ask, but the drag racer in me wants to do it lol

    Recently I have been reading through and watching a lot of the hydrodrag videos and I want to compete now.

    So my question is what hull would you use for a drag ski to be competitive? I have a 14 rxpx260 and although I wouldn't be opposed to going nuts on it Im not sure I have the funds to turn it into crts beast of an rxp but it's a possibility . I know there are different classes as well, but I'm wanting to build a 100+ mph ski at some point. Let me know if this thread belongs in a different section.

    depends on mods and water conditions.. but the two hulls dont compair... my hull will be faster on flat water but you will kill me in the chop.... when someone lines me up usually i cant keep it pinned unless the waters flat .. i come unhooked way too much .. my ski is setup very loose so its not the greatest in the chop

    Branden if you want to find out I will trade you. LOL
    Went out today to test your speed app you are using on your phone VS my garmin so going down river 85.9 turned around and came back this time sitting my old butt straight up on the seat 84.7 your phone app was 1/10th.MPH slower then my gps so I would say you are running real good. now I just need to rebuild my charger.
