    There is a reason for racing and setting up a stock class boat. They don't break down. You build a built ski and they break down

    Re: SJ vs SXR

    I haven't ridden an 08+ stupidjet, but my 02 is pretty friggin fast. Granted, it's not stock. But, although I can trash some buoys, if there are other guys who can ride, I choose the SXR.

    My bone stock, (aftermarket filters, and appropriate jetting) SXR is a good boat. I'm going to assume that stock class allows an intake grate, ride plate, and maybe some water routing tricks?
    The other SXR's are not even close to stock, so...

    My SJ is for freeride funday, my SXR's are for dipping my shoulder's or for losing my shoes. All the other's are for, well, whatever. I do ride the SXR's more, since it's rare for me to get out on weekends, where all the idiots have the boats out to make wakes.

    You've had an SXR. Have you ridden a newer sewerjet? I'm sure you know someone that would let you ride one. I think the final decision is your preference.

    Now go buy a gotdam ski, already.

    Harrison,

    Wilson's stock class SJ is the nicest handling ski and I have ridden. It will turn circles around the best stock class SXRs. It's more work, but in stock class, they are all slow, so work is a relative term. For triples, the SXR is pretty tough to beat simply for the wider tray, but IMO, for stock class, especially if you plan racing AJ's series, the SJ is the only choice.

    Seriously? What has he done to it? (and, mister, slow is a relative term. When you drive with your blinker on for 10 miles, at 35mph, stock is stupid fast!)

    I have ridden that ski, it is mind blowing. I wanted to put my old ski in the trash after riding it.

    That type of ski is fairly reliable with a bpipe and a modest ignition.

    As soon as you touch the cylinder you can only race it in GP or Open. Not saying you wont be competitive (because skill is a factor), but you will be going up against triples at that point. Honestly, I would rather run pump gas a stockish triple for less money to build if I were to go down that road.

    Well considering the world finals results of lites classes with no pipe allowed for the superjet. The superjets dominated all lites classes. Superjet is a far superior ski in stock class. Drives through chop better than an sxr, and turns much harder. Talking about the 2008+ obviously

    The one thing that bugs me about triple boats is the braking effect in turns when you let off the gas from the extra weight/weight dist. Seems to wear out a lot of riders. I'm sure experience is a factor here, I've only ridden a few boats with 3 cyl
