    Thumbs up Popular science review of FX SHO Cruiser

    Here is the first review of the FX SHO Cruiser
    http://popsci.typepad.com/popsci/200...-scores-t.html

    Says it has roughly the same power as an Audi TT Coupe (which has 2 engines for 07, one with 200 hp, one with 250 hp) I have been told by a long time dealer of mine that he inquired with his dealer rep today when he got his dealer packet in the mail (as he didn't attend the dealer meeting) and the rep informed him the FX SHO was rated at 210 HP.

    The Popular science review says a 0-30 time of 1.8 seconds and a 0-60 time of 6.8 seconds with no top speed referenced. Compare that to the shoot out from PWI for May of this year when they pitted the Ultra 250 against the RXT.

    07 RXT
    0-30 2.47 sec
    0-60 7.39 sec

    07 Ultra 250
    0-30 1.91 sec
    0-60 5.73 sec

    There is a video of the boat being ridden also.


    Here is a photo of the engine compartment and engine cover and one of the Cruiser the editor rode.

    i watched the video on the site also, looks good and sounds good, but it sure was bouncing alot when it was going by the boat. I know he was riding over his own wake so that proly caused the bounce and im sure he had the trim all the way up. It did look "light" in the water though, should be a badass ski with some mods.
