    Raced an Ultra 250 Today

    Well while over at a friend's running buoys with him. A couple of his dad's friends stopped by with their Ultra 250s. Gotta say those look pretty good in person. I race one of them with my dad's 05 rxt since both of my closed course boats are gettin fixed.

    The RXT has about 50 hours on it and is bone stock expect for a set of riva pro sponsons(set all the way down) which I added today just for buoy practice(the sponsons are supposed to be going on my limited class boat). From a dead stop the Ultra 250 holeshoted me but I dont think it was by much. Mid-range to top end pretty much even till we hit alot of boat traffic wakes and then it pulled me by about a boat length.

    Also my friend Andrew took the Ultra 250 and we raced through the buoy for a few laps. The course was pretty tight and that Ultra was just hauling compared to the RXT which was a pain

    Overall I think the Ultra 250 is a really nice boat and I know it's kickin a$$ in Region 5's Supercourse, but I'll stick to my rxps for Closed Course and Supercourse.

    Ken,

    I have a RaceTech 2003 GTX with EMS. Mark should have it ready for me in the next 2-3 weeks. I can't wait for an Ultra to pull up next to me and ask me to run out of the hole! I am going to have a lot offun this summer here on Smith Mountain Lake.

    I had surgery recently and I am recuperating and can't ski for a little while.

    I hope everything went well...under the knife, that is.

    R & R can be a pain.

    It was nice out there today.

    Looking forward to seeing that ski.

    I rode and drag raced a 250 today, very nice ski. stan has already done some handling stuff to it and I must say that it is a very smooth ski. handling is great and very predictable and can make a clutz rider like myself feel in total control, way better than an RXT. 1/4 mile plus drag race was dead even from start to finish with better than a stock RXP top speed.

    I assume you were on the RXP? What stage is your RXP?
