    hull diff from SHO vs FZR

    what is the speed diff from SHO to FZR? from stock to stock
    i think the fzr has about 2.5 mph advantage over the SHO hull
    since they both have the same engine with the same mods
    the fzr will accelerate faster and has a higher to top speed .
    i like how stable my SHO is and how it performs in the ocean , but man the fzr is just fast next year, im gonna get a fzr and prob move all my perfromance stuff to it .

    There are so many factors involved. Technically the FZR should be a couple mph faster because it’s lighter. However, the other day I edged out a buddy of mine who has an FZR and I have a SHO Cruiser. One of the reasons for example maybe that I broke mine in better or that he hit different waves than I did. If you already have a SHO stick with it because you wont see much of difference if any with the FZR. JMO.

    Sounds like you have the bug.Build a GPR-SHO conversion and ride a "real" two seater.

    It's fun having both.

    I am not taking anything away from the FZR, it's going to be a great ski.
