    some ??? and info from new member.hull pics added

    Hi guys, I have just been reading through some of the posts since signing up and there is alot of good info here and obviously some dedicated seadoo enthusiasts here!

    I work in a seadoo shop in NewZealand and we do alot of race skis but mostly been kawa poleskis and hx's, xp's etc (if you follow racing at worlds we built the 3 time sport class winning HX) also Kings cup winner.
    Although we have always worked on rxp and rxts at more of a low level recreational ski we are getting into a few stage 3 + skis and currently building up our own shop rxp with a re worked hull with all new strakes side edges squared up where they normally angle up to the sides, filled in opas areas, extended at the rear to edge of bond rail etc (took pics but camera crapped itself but will post soon.
    Engine wise I have all the parts ready to go inc Les c kit, fuel reg,riva ecu and injectors,valve train upgrade,intercooler,custom intake tubing and large [email protected] with cotton removed, wont be running a waterbox,rear exhaust,bored out stainless wear ring and custom oversized prop,drop nozzle etc.UMI steering,intake grate,open cooling,custom rideplate built from scratch.
    What are your thoughts on blow off valves we have never run them on our skis but wonder if we should with racing the throttle will be snapped shut alot more than casual riding?
    What rear exhaust fitting are out there as not sure how to do it with the extended hull its obiously thicker and angled compared to a stock hull section so the clamping style of the riva etc wont work?
    I will get some pics up soon as I will be painting the top deck tomorrow and then assembly begins as we want it up and running by end of january and racing in our nationals start of march hoping for insane acceleration and around 78-80mph but want bottom end punch.
    We use alot of Les Cook parts long with Riva and custom parts we make ourselves our shop has a good relationship through racing etc with Les and he offers us alot of help with all seadoo craft.
    Enough rambling on and look forward to reading more posts on the site!
    Cheers and Happy new year.
