OK, you can inhale now. I'm thinking that you can now get the Super G through Bonzi' as he got prety much everything when Tony Castronovo retired from the business.Mike Zaborowski and I are old friends but with those two boats I'd go with the Super G. The lay-up is heavier so it'll take a good beating. The Rio's driveline to me is a little weird and not all that dependable so points lost there.The first gen Rio's had problems with the Fuji 28 and the exhaust was misaligned which broke the exhaust flange off on the block. Yes, problems with the engine rails not being put in very well was also a big issue.How the Super G's are now with Bonzi' making them I don't know as I haven't heard anything since they took over.

Nothing wrong with a fuji -28 for a play boat .LOL.The fuji I put in my brothers TMNT boat. http://youtu.be/rUNWozOsBf4 Ran pretty good, but not as good as a zenoah. Have a zenoah in my rio. I enjoy running mi rio.
