    GTX 230 or any 230 vs FXHO

    I have read ,although limited info ,the sea doo 230 is not noticeably quicker out of the hole or top speed. Does anyone have any feedback on this subject. One would think the the FXHO N/A would be allot slower all the way around then a SC 1500.

    Thx

    I raced 215 GTR on my 16 vxr and it was pretty close until top speed. Pretty similar comparison.

    My GTX 215 had MUCH better acceleration than my friends FX HO.....top speed the HO was maybe 6 to 8 MPH slower.

    Its true the FX is pretty close to the seadoo GTR230 on take off, the FX HO gets it out of the hole. however the top speed the GTR 230 pulls away at the end by about a ski length and a half.

    My experience racing my friends FX HO....my GTX 215 was MUCH quicker I would think the 230 would be the same..Try to get a ride on a HO and than on a SC ski and you will see what I mean..for a non SC ski the HO is good and would be a great ski for touring, but if you want FAST acceleration also go with a SC ski, Seadoo, Yamaha or Kawai,,,,,big difference...

    I think Parrothead would back me up on this, my FX Cruiser HO is definitely faster out of the hole than a 230 or 215. Not sure about top end on the 230 but when I have raced 215s we were a dead heat on top end. I have ribbon delete and the R&D Power Plenum but I weigh 240 lbs., so its not like I have a weight advantage Other than these 2 mods, it is factory stock. (Plus, I definitely enjoy the fuel savings with the N/A motor)

    How are you guys measuring top end where you say something pulls away a ski length. If a ski is 3-4 mph faster on the top end it will walk away, not just stay a ski length ahead. A 230 will be in the 68.x mph range from factory.

    When I had my rxt 215 and my brother had Yamaha fx ho there was nothing to compare when it came to speed and acceleration I was always ahead and he wasn't even close to staying next to me from start to top speed.

    I have owned a Kawi 300x it was a monster out of the hole. I dont expect the 230 to be that crazy but I am surprised to hear that the FXHO would be the same or better then the 230 out of the whole. I know the FXHO top speed is approx. 6-61 and the 230 is approx 68 but I was wondering about hole shot and mid range punch comparisons. Sound like the hole and mid is about the same.

    I would like to see that on the video like I said there is no comparison 215 or 230 will be much faster especially a hole shot
