    Rxpx intake grate

    I'll tell you from my experience that the Solas 4 blade and the r/d grate is the worst handling package I've had on the ski. HOWEVER .... It seems to be the fastest.

    I ripped off a 77.2 he other day on a full tank mid 80 s temp. Today I ripped off a couple 77.8 s on 1/3 of a tank mid 80 s temps.

    The best with my worx grate is 77.4 with one bar of fuel on glass in much cooler weather.

    I'm wondering if the 3 blade will keep me hooked up enough to use the r/d grate and still be able to ride where I ride without to much dis comfort.

    As of now if I'm on glass it feels great. But add any wakes into the mix and this combo blows IMO.

    Please quit modding your ski and come to mod mine. It is sitting in my garage unused for like 3 weeks!

    The 3 blade will give you more hit down low and probably cost you 1mph up top. It willl not help you in the hook-up dept. If you want to stay planted better, get a better Skat pump with more veins for continuous flow and remove any pump wedge if you are running one. Just remember, these changes will slow you down on the flats.


    Oh btw - Skat pumps are pricey.

    Just my .02.

    Yep... Changed my oil!

    the more I ride with the r/d grate and 4 blade the more I realize it's not THAT bad of a setup.

    With the worx it's much easier to throttle through the chop at full speed, but with the r/d grate you don't get in over your head in the chop because it doesn't. Let you. You have no choice but to half throttle it... With the worx you can push the limits...

    I use The WORX Grate + Skate 3 blade (15/19) in my other ski T-X

    plus : OPAS Race Engineer , 2Rude , Skegs ....

    Perfect combination for maneuvering
