    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).

    It looks as though the RXT-X is beating it on the hole shot and the VXR only catches up because it has a slightly better top speed.

    Yep, you got it. No one disputes that from zero to 20mph, the T-X will eat the VXR's lunch. The T-X has trim, and is a much longer/heavier boat, so it's the undisputed(arguably) hole-shot king. It's also super-charged. So what your seeing is that the T-X comes up on boost almost instantly, whereas the VXR is more consistent and steady with its power band.

    Smaller hull , lighter ski I guess. But the VXR is faster then a FX SHO hands down any day. Ive race one back to back about 10 times and the VXR always wins.

    Good old power to weight trick.
