    Top of the line SKI

    4tec performance.. I know you have your own ski that u modify. But business is business and there is a budget. But wait. What if you had someone with an unlimited amount of cash.

    What platform would you choose?
    What would you have done?
    How much would it all cost installed and tested?

    Bascially the ultimate machine, the sky is the limit. and of course what would the top speed estimate be?

    that is very subjective to opinions,
    heres mine: drop off the ski, 2 or 3 seater at Nils or mark and say have at it, make sure to leave them with a blank check!...PR...
    the list would be looooong.......................................... .................

    I was thinking about dropping the 300hp motor into the xp? Is the motor too big?

    GPR with all the handling and hull work (maybe even carbon fiber hull)

    1500cc SCed Rotax Engine with JE pistons, Nils worked head, RR race cam, Les C kit 15psi, Riva stage 2 with an EMS running 3_ _ HP on race gas

    pump and prop details I haven't a clue

    90+ mph?

    A RXT with a turbine. I would think it would need a 3 seater hull so it wouldn't porpoise at 150+mph. Water jacketed seats so your butt doesn't burn off. A wind deflector on the front so bugs don't remove skin. Maybe a hull that you would lay down in facing front so you would be more aerodynamic. Almost a ergonomic superman positiion.

    The RXP hull. It rides like a dream well over 80 mph.

    What would you have done?
    Rotax Racing engine management system and all the engine work to support the power that it will deliver. Also a modified supercharger that creates more boost.


    How much would it all cost installed and tested?
    If a shop had to do it for you probably about $30,000 parts/labor


    I cannot disclose speeds at this point in time, but after the Mudbug Nationals event we can talk about it
