    S3 hull VS GTI hull

    So, we are looking for buying a pair of seadoos. One spark and a GTR215 or a GTX215 limited. But im not sure wich to choose... I have driven the GTR (GTI hull) and like the handling, you can do 180s and play around. But never a GTX, which has the s3 hull. How is the handling on that hull compared to the GTI hull? Also is it worth the extra money to buy the GTX instead of the GTR? (2k euros) Finally, the engine is the same, right? 215 horsepower SC with internal IC

    Can you still have a little play and do 180s or is it more off a tight turning hull?

    Yeah i know, but i would like to know how a hull i have never ridden performs/acts. I have another question, GTR vs GTX in sport mode, who wins "acceleration-wise"? GTX is about 40kg heavier

    GTI Hull creates more drag. I've never seen a GTR compete with a GTX

    The Gtr is quicker of line but GTX will catch it and pass it ...

    I have spend much time on both , how about a S3 Tx non IS

    T-X is another 3700 (than GTR) though...:/ But it will definitely be considered

    I have wondered about the best 'Frankenstein ski' ... Use a S3 TX hull, no suspension, no IBR, 2012 up pump setup ... What would be your take? Eventually I would like to upgrade, but I actually do not want IBR (potential issues), don't want the damn pump bolted to the ride plate, don't want a shitty leaking intercooler, etc. S3 hull, stripped, no garbage, turbo, motec maybe ...

    I want the S3 Hull. I'd swap my engine and electronics in, no IBR, drive by CABLE and have a beast.

    Get the T-X. It's worth the money. I'm currently debating on a new Jeep Grand Cherokee, a RAM crew big horn or keeping my custom 300c, getting a little beater 4x4 and picking up a new 2016 T-X
