    I got into a chat with my dad and he told me that mine would never be faster than his. I told him that I have done everything to mine that he has to his, plus the ride-plate. He just kept telling me, "There are still some other things that I did that would wont know." I know he never did anything big with the motor but there really isnt anything more I can do with just the hull itself other to make it faster. You can only do so much before you need more power in the motor to see anymore gain.

    Do you guys have any idea of what he might be talking about? anything small that can be done to the motor? Im not going to be slower than him!

    small modifications to the motor would require actual diassembly of part of the motor. I dont think there are many mods that you can do inside of the engine compartment that wouldnt be just obvious. If he went into the motor there are a number of improvments to be had here....the simplest and most bang for the buck is to recut the heads for more compression.

    If you are positive that he hasnt had motor work done and you cant visually see anything different inside of ski... its possible hes trying to get you goin.... but the only way to know is to line them up and see whos got the stuff.

    Yea, he sold it about 4 years ago. But I dont know, I think he is telling me the truth. His buddy of his always hated that his raider was faster so he got a SLTX polaris with the dominator pump. My dad beat him out of the hole shot and they stayed at the same lengths for about over a mile. His just always seemed faster than what mine does. He never GPS'd his but his speedo has said 70 once. Now even with it being off (like all are) thats still faster than my 67 mph speedo. He just keeps telling me that he has done some stuff to his that he wont tell me.
