I wouldn't take this one on the river. For two reasons, as it doesn't have a separate lift fan, and I can't swim lol. I plan to take it to a flat field to test it out sometime this week if it ever stops raining.

Don't worry about the separate fan. Swimming is an issue. I thought they float for that purpose.

What size motor does it have currently?

Yes they still will float, but if you let go of the throttle all the air will come out of the skirts, with a chance of water logging it. It has a Rotax 277cc snowmobile motor on it. I am looking for a new cooling fan, and plastic cooling duct.

ballin. Gotta pull up to a drive though mcdonalds or something.

I'm in a coffee shop where they are placing mid 90's rap. So I'm feeling a little gangsta right now. Even though I don't like this shit.

I built my wife a little xj a few years ago to sand/ mud race, It's got a 4.5 stroker and she's won alot of races (14 last year and 10 so far this year) needless to say a guy's came along with another xj and beat her last month at the sand drags. She ran a 4.03 and he ran a 3.98, so next week is the big race of the year with a big purse. So yesterday I dropped the 4.6 stroker I have for the Eagle project down in a junker xj I had in the yard and I'm gonna go try to beat this guy. Here's some pics of her jeep and the blue one is the one I'm putting together this week, I had it out last night and it screams on 225 snow tires...LOL

Just finished replacing the tranny pan on my winter beater. I hit a pothole, the other day, so hard I crunched the pan and left a three inch hole. Changed the engine oil and filter while I was under there.
