I haven't rolled mine yet. It definately leans more than my dad's 85 MC that I grew up with though.

You can flip anything if you try hard enough

I never flipped a 85 MC and I tried very hard. A golf cart, 4 wheeler, and go carts are a different story and I flipped all of them.

The X2 has a deep(er) V hull, and is a V drive, it's not meant for those maneuvers. Turning sharp is one thing and sliding the back end around is another.

Im going to agree with this, the direct drive 190's with their central engine, and flatish bottom hull spin pretty easily in this maneuver, that being the back doesn't really fight against coming around.

For the X2 hull to do the same its got the engine weight there in the back holding the V of the rear of the hull down, attempting to slide the rear is going to be more violent and less safe, not that its safe in a 190, but eh.

Is your insurance paid for?

I've never power turned/slide in my MC, to me that's for jet boats & jetskis. That just seem like alot of unnecessary stress and risk of damage. I'll let the other fools slide thier boats mine's for pulling :D

If you roll that pig you were really doing something wrong. If you get that pig to do a powerslide video it!

I had a Sea Doo challenger 2000 before my X1 and you could definitely powerslide that. And if I have any pictures of anything flipping it will hopefully be someone else.
