    Just need to vent: lying idiots out there

    So I'm searching the world wide web for good price on a 2007 RXT.
    Find this add on craigslist..
    Guy says it is bone stock... Does 70 mph stock.
    AND GET THIS,
    100 MPH with a few mods..

    Ok, that got me.. We all know 70 mph is gonna take some mods on an RXT.. But 100 ??
    So I sent him a very classy email and told him he was way off and needs
    to represent his product for sale correctly..
    And that it might go 100mph on a trailer behind a fast tow vehicle.

    I get back an email:

    it goes 70 mph stock, it has 215hp and its supercharged...get your facts stright fool.




    Wow, what class and bad spelling too!!
    It just shows that buyer beware applies once again..
    Glad Greenhulk and other forums exist so people can be educated and not
    fall for this crap.
    Thanks for listening.
    Tom

    That guy probably think his stock speedometer is the accurate way to read the speed, sometimes the stock speedo are so way off, they can tell you you are speeding like hell while your cruising...!

    Peoples should not thrust the speedometers...either get clocked on a radar gun or at least use a GPS to adjust your speedo accordingly.

    That is true. He is going off what he reads on the speedo. But to say 100 with mods is just ignorant..

    Everyone on this site knows the heaviest thing on a jetski is a GPS.... it can slow skis down as much as 20-30 mph!

    No way I want one of those on my ski... let me believe my dreamometer is accurate and I am really running 97mph... ignorance is bliss!

    I think it depends on the year you have. I have an 04 that actually reads very close to gps when hooked up in a stright line. I have seen my speedo at 74. My speedo only seems to be off 1 or 2 miles per hour unless in chop or turning hard seems to make the speedo go crazy.
