    The skis are both bone stock
    both full of fuel
    both ridden by the same rider, me!

    so which has the better acceleration on a level playing field? (Flat water)
    stay tuned to the Watercraft Journal for results. Once they publish the result video I will come back and post the link here

    Nice job! It would be interesting to see the doo numbers with launch control.

    Now you guys gotta do a Stage 1 ECU tune to satisfy the modding community.

    Good video. But FYI, you guys gave the weight of gasoline as 8.6 lbs per gallon, which is the weight of water per gallon. Gasoline is 6.3 lbs

    If you look at the numbers and compare acceleration over time, the RXT only beats the GP1800 on the initial 5-20mph

    RXT GP1800
    5-20 0.85 vs 1.08
    20-30 0.62 vs 0.6
    30-40 0.7 vs 0.7
    40-50 0.85 vs 0.82
    50-60 1.34 vs 1.22
