I would like to know what different kind of mounting options there are for the ebox. I am planning a Zeeltronics TL swap once I have all of the parts and pieces.

I was wondering if anyone has ever made a bracket for the electronics that utilizes the girdle studs..? I was imagining that if to had two pieces of tube that slid over the shafts of the girdle studs to serve as the base for mounting an ebox... is there any reason this is a bad idea?

The engine vibrated a lot, might no be good to have your circuits hanging off the side vibrating. Neat idea though.

Maybe if it had Rubber isolators ??

I made a few Ebox mounting plates for WDK RIPs. Attach them to the back wall via bolts. Having a plate on the back side would also be beneficial.

I know you're chasing a backflip! Zeeltronics will be a great upgrade. I watched a few of your videos and with your smaller motor (although a PHP780 is a monster) you'll need some more body english. I've seen this endless pursuit people get in to accomplish a backflip and it's done 1 of 2 ways: 1 burning through a lot of gasoline (kinda like buying talent) or 2: big motor and way less skill (I've done both now)

good luck and just keep things simple, keep getting more tray time!

Thank you! I am good with burning gas for now. Lol. I think learning on a ski with less power will make me learn the fundementals better as well as learn to feel where I am and the ski is as I ride. Definitely feel much more confident and am handling the ski better as time goes on.

What is your current ebox setup?
Right now it is mounted on the bulkhead (front of tray/back of engine bay)... where it is, and how it was wired, it is offest towards the carbs. My bilge line runs by it and is kinked because of the ebox being in the way... i can move the bilge fitting but I dont want to close that hole and I really like where it is... i was thinking it would be easier to move the ebox. I dont have a picture from inside but see attached for rough location.

When I go to zeel, I am going to move the battery from in the gunnel next to the tray to a limited slip tank. I was going to move the ebox when I swap all of the electronics. I am not against leaving the ebox on the bulkhead, but would like to get my bilge line unkinked... 8CA6CCDF-8AEB-46AB-B13E-6EBC04776DA0.jpeg

Yes and no IMO. I went the same route you are going. Learned to flip with a 701 in a carbon hull and then just kept upgrading power and parts chasing bigger and better tricks. Now that i'm riding a 1200 comp ski I am finding that a lot of the muscle memory I built up learning how to flip my smaller engines is hamstringing some of the tricks I bought this new ski for. I use a ton of body english that is no longer really needed, and that is slowing my progress on idle flips and combos. I will get it sooner or later, but looking back, if i had had the money to do so, id have started on a 900cc comp or 1000cc motor so the transition to this 1200 would be a little less extreme.
