    RXT-X Vs. 2011 Yamaha VXR

    Here is the video I shot awhile ago. It's my 2008 Seadoo RXT-X Vs. the 2011 Yamaha VXR. The parts/mods for each boat are listed in the video. Clearly, the VXR is faster....
    Oh, and yes the water was glass, but you will also notice, since the camera is mounted primarily on the VXR, that there is no porpoising!!!!
    Enjoy.......


    Be sure to subscribe to my channel. My next "test" will be the Kawasaki Ultra 300X(if it ever shows up).

    Vxr is impressive. TX has a clear acceleration advantage but looses it on top end. Looks like you need to get that pig outta the water a bit.

    I'm doing the best I can.....but, it's hard to wrestle a 900lb beast any faster. The T-X pulls hard, no doubt about it. But, the VXR walks away from it on the top end. And, even in the mid-range pull, they're practically welded together.....

    Not sure how big the vxr is but I do know it can be tough to get any leverage on the tx.
    Nice job on the vid.

    You can do a whole lot of moving around on the T-X and not make a whole lot of difference. I had the trim set at one bar below max nose up, that seems to yield the highest top speeds.
    And, for the record, this is the fastest my T-X has run in almost 2 years. I dunno what's different, but I was stuck at a solid 68.5mph forever!!! Must be getting ready to blow.....LOL

    If the TX is running the OEM grate, ditch it...You'll gain atleast 2-3...

    WOW. Very disappointing. A friend of mine just bought a vxr. Now I'm worried.

    I saw in another thread where you mentioned the vxr ran 66.1 mph stock so it gained roughly 4 mph from the performer kit and sponsons. Not bad for under a grand. However I think that you could spend a grand on a tx and the vxr would never catch it. Ater watching your vid a modded rideplate would be on top of the to do list. I know of a few mostly stock tx's running 72+ consistantly. The fastest ones have a cooler of beer strapped on the rear.

    Better start modding now before he does.
