    Who's the fastest? Seadoo or skidoo?

    On water off course!!!

    After watching this film it kind of got me wondering... Who is actually the fastest? If the skidoo is, then why not rethink the jetpump, and give it a belt instead?? Make a kind of afloat skidoo...

    Well here's the film:

    I'm not sure what engine and setup some guy was running with his sled (I do know it was a old 2 stroke so prolly 700cc max unless bored and stroked), but he started on the beach, gave the 951 XP a good head start, then made up a ton of ground and easily dusted the XP within what looked like 1/8 mile or so. I mean this sled had to be going 70+mph maybe 75+mph on water no problem. He even turned and waved to the guy on the XP. Bye bye!

    Some of the sleds we trail ride are in excess of 1000cc (2 strokes). Helped a friend this summer as a pit hand for the waterskips in Grantsburg WI. Some of the sleds hit 80mph on water, yes they do sink.
    Here's a link for anyone interested http://www.iwausa.org/

    I'm living in Quebec, Canada, and can confirm that many years ago (when it was still recent) i personally rode my Ski-Doo Mach 1 Rotax twin 700cc...on open clear water for quite a long stretch, it was very fast.....in fact i went back to snow before something wrong could possibly happen to me and the sled....but the sled was very fast (faster on water than on land) in fact when that sled hit the water i thought it would slow down, but in fact due to water traction it actually went faster....and pulled quite hard on the handle bars....quite a funny feeling...!!!

    But i would have never dare to ride for a so much long time on open water....just imagine a seized piston, broken drive belt, or even just water making the belt slip into the clutch....then you slow down.....and drown...

    These guys are FREAKS...!!!

    More fun in the summer than in the winter. You're not going to get frost bite in the summer, just sun burn
