    the 110's and 140's are very close on speed anyway
    speedo's are all just dreamometers (very inacurate) you could try spraying the wheel with rp7 or something that may help

    just hook an OS 540 electric motor to the speedo wheel with a 1400mah battery.

    the speedo will read 85mph and youll be feeling fine


    or just take heed to what Kev says

    Stock for stock, the FX might have 30 hp more, but it's also 145lb heavier on the '08 models. The FX is also also a bit longer, so with the larger hull and extra weight you would probably beat him in rougher water while enjoying a more comfortable ride. We gps'd my friends stock VX Cruiser at 53.

    The power-to-weight ratios are almost IDENTICLE(the vx is actually a little better) while the FX 140 has 998cc and the vx110 has 1052cc .
