....but I know they are the same 12" diameter units.



Hey 2000 what happened.....do you still stand by your comment above?
I knew the SSEi has 12" cause I measured them and have to admit that I made an assumption that the GXP rotors were the same because they share the same H body design......
but I should have known better that due to the much higher weight of that V8, the GXP needs to have more stopping power.

My SSEi is still faster than your GXP, probably stops quicker too.

Hey with the blower and all those mods you added I would hope so.

Hmm...what are the power numbers on the V series N* with a blower...

Looks like this topic has run it course

You are making this another SSEi is better than GXP thing and I am tired of playing.

Shadow, nobody is saying better than you in a negative sense. A stock SSEi is quicker than a stock GXP, and that'* a well-known fact. Nobody is saying they're better than YOU. The misconception that the GXP was quicker than the SSEi has cost us dearly over the last year. We need to accept facts, find ways to improve them, and move on.

Back on topic.
