    got walked today...

    Saw a 2013 GTX 260 today...went by the mrs and some other slower traffic. I pulled up on his 5...maybe 2 boat lengths back and hit it....1'+ chop w/ occasional cross wakes...

    I couldn't catch him...as soon as the water'd calm a bit I'd start to gain...then I'd leave the water and he'd start walkin away.

    New ski to him...he thought it was a 2010....figured on calmer water he might hit 70...told him the guys here would be able to help cross that threshold w/o too much trouble...heh.

    Got me wonderin though....if I do eventually up boost and fuel...will it matter if I'm outa the water when doin 70+ in chop and a stock s3 hull can walk away from me?

    I have had that problem too, those S3 hulls are hard to catch when your out of the water pushing air!

    No, it won't really matter. Best bet is to set your ski up for rough water if you want to beat him. R&D grate or other, OPAS block-offs, Lucky 13 Pump Cone. Things like that to start...

    On my Honda if a Ski beat me in chop that I knew I could otherwise beat if I stayed hooked up, I would ride up to them, and ask them to follow me to a cove. With mt PX the Chop is sometimes my friend, but I still don't like racing in chop as I know it's hard on the S/C.

    I'm running a Riva pump with the L-13 cone, & my old RXT hooks up so so well now, I can pull away from the RXT 260's in the chop .
    Huge improvement.

    What the hull!? I can't stay in the water for crap past 75 in anything past 1.5ft. Guess it's the pump.
