...'06 RXP top speed?
Has anyone been successful at recording a top speed for a stock RXP?
I currently own a stock '06 RXP. Only upgrades performed is the reverse bucket modification. I haven't filled in the rideplate holes yet, but that is the plan for the near future. That being said... with just under 3/4 tank of gas I recorded a GPS top speed of 70.6 mph . I am really curious as to what the speed will be with roughly a 1/4 tank of gas and rideplate holes filled? Planning to get an impeller, cold air intake and a Riva Supercharger impeller for next season.

I just picked up my new '06 RXP Friday b/4 last but I have not yet been able to take it out!
www.boattest.com tested an '06 @ 65+ in salt water with minimal chop and based on what I've read your #'s sound pretty good. What were the conditions when you GPS'ed?

I see that you installed the metal washers. Did you buy the ones from Jerry's store? RIVA sells their own brand but they appear to be coated. I want to do this upgrade soon but I can't decide on whose washers to buy. According to Jerry's experience the coated washers tend to slip, which I can understand, but can't see RIVA overlooking this...
Thanks in advance,

Disregard my question about the washers as I see the answer in your signature. Another question though. How many hours do you have with the washers installed?

Looks like you were answering my question as I was telling you to disregard. Thanks though. Funny abt the $30 comment going towards another mod or beer. Typical gearheads we are! Oh well great minds think alike

Well I wasn't so much worried about the longevity as I was slippage. I read somewhere that the metal washers will slip once heated up but I want some real world opinions. But like you I too have read lots of threads on this forum and didn't hear any negatives, at least none reported. Guess I'll go ahead & order Jerry's.
Thanks for helping me make up my mind.
