    The question doesn't make sense. Your driveshaft doesn't need to be upgraded. What exactly are you trying to do ?

    But if your RXT is the 215 the driveshaft doesn't need to be upgraded.

    Now the engine side of the 185 and 215 are the same. The prop side is bigger on the 215 models.

    That isn't going to work!!!!! you cannot use the RXP stuff in the RXT, first of all if you put the RXP pump shoe in you will not find an intake grate that will fit, second the shaft is too long and you would have to find a way to extend the carbon seal to fit the shaft and you would have to move the motor forward( NOT A GOOD IDEA). This whole idea is not a good one, you will have nothing but problems and waste alot of your time.

    +1, you need to think about this, because sometimes messing around with that shaft and carbon seal area ends up a disaster if you don't know what you're doing. We have seen a lot of skis end up sunk and/or get water damaged engines this way; from people trying to convert or upgrade something that was fine from the factory in that area. If you don't get that carbon seal just right you can sink your ski in a matter of seconds. The RXT shoe/pump setup is an azz kicker and will out-perform an RXP in the chop. There are ways to modify your RXT in other areas that will give you better gains. Just giving you some food for thought, I do wish you all the best with it.
