    can a gpr hull and motor run 90?

    Ive heard one ski doing it that i can recall but i didnt see it cause it wasnt running right at mudbug but i have seen one ski run 89.6. But thats so rare or is i? It seems almost easy with an rxp motor.

    The 1390-1500 BB motors with triple pipes can do it. I believe you would of seen it at mudbug this year with better conditions (less heat and humidity).

    Its been done before. IT is rare only a hand full have done it and I've only seen video of ONE yamaha tripple even do it.
    Everything has to be perfect and its not easy with a rxp engine either. You still have to have the right setup on the hull to run those numbers.

    Yellow bird can do it in the right conditions for sure. I am positive a ski like Woody's could do it in the right conditions also.

    There are many that can do it in the "right" conditions. I don't doubt mine can go 93mph+ in the right conditions but I'm not claiming it without proof. Haaa...maybe one of these days...

    All jetskis can do 90 in the "RIGHT " conditions..... Say your running along on your GPR talking turning around talking to your girlfriend behind you.... and you miss the buoys in the water that says "WARNING....FALLS AHEAD" well then your almost to the RIGHT CONDITIONS......... ofcourse then Ben Engvall will say "HERES YOUR SIGN" and post you on Country Fried Home Videos
