This is a few Michigan boys having a little fun. We couldn't go to the Bug, but here we are anyway, out on St. Clair! One of us had a little water leak problem(pic #2).

Notice in pic #3 I have a soda in the cup holder. Never thought I'd use that! I like the SHO more and more everyday. Anyway the guys I ride with are second to none. Thanks for the great ride guys.

Yep, it was a fun ride! I have quite a lot of water in my hull from that ride back across St Clair, going to have to do something about that. Andy, I was really impressed with your new SHO, definitely a quality piece. I am amazed at the handling, turns better than my GPR. All the ski's and people on this ride were top notch. Franks triple piper is runnin sweet as well as Darrens RXP-X, both very fast. Hopefully we can get out again this summer and maybe even meet up with some of those fast St Clair guys I've heard about

Yup, had great time riding with all you
Cool to meet and ride with you Andy and Voodoo.
All the ski's run great and damn that SHO is a sleeper Love the blue color.
I'm happy with the performance of the new X with a few bolt on's. That riva rear air setup really woke this ski up. I ran great... had a best of 76.6 and then 76.3 last weekend on the RXP-X so I would consider it a 76.5 average for this stage 1+ RXP-X.
Today I went out and was averaging 75.8 -76.4 with the different nozzle. I think the best performance is with a 82 ring on the X I had last week. The 83ring slowed it down about 1/2 mph.
I tried the stock nozzle 87mm and got 74 but the acceleration and holeshot was killer.
Clayton came out today and his ski ran great too today.
I got a best of 85.1 on Franks ski superman in the cut area. That ski is scary..... Set up for flat water only or hell I can't ride that thing. As soon as I start to hit 80 it wants to lift like a plane and it gets scary fast.
I then ran it out of fuel trying to race Mike(MRO)who has the fastest RXP I've seen at St. Clair. I think he's 82.5 mph with the new X charger so he's 2 mph faster then last year which is crazy fast.
Frank raced Mike two times later. The first time I beleive they both left the same and Frank got him, but the 2nd race Mike holeshoot Frank and got him. Nice FAST skis.......
Thanks for the fun times guys and hope to ride with you all again during the summer

My SHO was running consistant 67.6mph today. With a peak of 67.8 she's got 4.5 hrs on the motor and I filled the stock ride plate holes.
Still I'm way slower than any of my buddies
can't wait till I get a few parts for it .
