    Dan, I picked up a 96 SPI, was thinking bout putting a 787 in it. Besides the fuel tank, electronics etc..which I have , what would I need to do as far as motor mounts? The 787 has 3, and I think this spi has 4? do they line up at all, or would I need to glass em in........BigT

    I think I remember someone saying that the rear two line up but you have to glass in the front one.

    The rear motor mounts need to be "in & back" from the stock rear mounts & the front needs to be glassed in,here are some more pics of what needs to be done....

    the 580 in my '90 sp reached about 40-42 mph....like everyone is saying maybe get it and either put a 787(this is what i have in my xp) or a 951

    IMO It would be a waste of time putting a 800 in a SPI when you can buy 96 XPs all day long for under $2500/2000.

    The HX never came with the 800 so its a little more worth doing for a diehard HX rider.

    If your gonna stuff something into something but a 951 in it.

    didn't the '96 spx come with a 787 or a 720? I say that because a friend of mine bought I believe a '96 spx and it can just about keep up with my xp....I agree the X4 hull is a great hull(compared to the others)...97sltx, wanna buy my xp?
