    I think the "official" Guiness record is 87.5, but that was unofficially busted at last years Mudbug with Kerry Hibdon's 88.8 mph run. Just last weekend Kerry ran 90 and my ski ran 91+ and several of us witnessed Dan Okeefe run 94.5 on a RXP.

    Who needs Guiness? As far as im concerned the Mudbug Nationals is all the recognition we need

    when Stan rode it, it almost went to 92 in the heat and he said that it was pretty locked down.

    Imagine what it would have done a little looser???? Amazing.

    It was definatly hooked to the water and could be a tad looser I guess. If I could have found decent water Friday it wouldn't have been a problem to go much faster.

    The top speed wasn't any way near as impressive as the acceleration!! Absolutely crazy!!! Cruising at mid 80s looking for a decent stretch to hammer it was insane. Even at that speed the boat had tremedous pull to the 90s.

    Anyone have an RXP motor for sale?
