Endurance racing, what am I getting into?
Theres some local racers here, who race all over Washington State and Canada, one of them is talking me hard into trying the bouys, but I told him I really dont need a boat smacked up and I like to really open them up and make long speed runs, so he tells me about their endurance races. It sounds VERY tempting, but what am I getting into? I'm not even sure where my boats fall into for any certain class. I know others here do it, so what say you? By the way this is lake racing not out in the open waters of the Sound or ocean riding.

Do it! Doesn't matter what skill level or modification level your at, just go do it for the thrill of it racing is a blast and I think we should all do it!

Its a lot of fun and takes good endurance. If it were my first race I would take the TX out instead of the PX.

If it were to get rough the TX would be a MUCH easier ride than the RXP.

If your dead set on the 07 your going to need RE block offs and a CC grate to stay in the water.

Absolutely, you can do it and the RXT-X will be the one to use! It takes a lot of training, very demanding on machine and riders. Talk to a member here named Dubz1 (Rob) for more tips, I believe he ran and won the mother of all endurance races in 2009, the Mark Hahn 300 (300 miles). Dubz1 can give you some good advice on getting started, also my web buddy Shawn Alladio has won it last year, she is a member here too. Here's a few links for you:

To add to what Duke said.....You'll need lifter wedges to keep yourself on the ski while trying to keep the ski in the water..
Only install them on the outer footwell not the inside, you'll break an ankle or something.
Get the bottom set.
You'll need lotsa forearm & leg strength. Will these be supercourse's or point to point enduro's?
