    2019 gp1800 faster than a 2018 or 17 gp1800?

    Is the 2019 gp1800 faster than the 18 and 17s just because it comes with a new ride plate and grate?

    I imagine itís quicker 0-top speed but itís limited so.. theyíre all limited to 68(???) per coast guard agreement.

    +lighter hull
    +better ride plate
    -intake grate

    Iíd bet itís a hair quicker but not much. With limiter removed I bet top itís still close to the 18, that intake grate will be causing some drag at top speed to negate the weight savings and new plate.

    Same hull, only the VXR went from Nano 1 to Nano 2!
