    2006 RXP opas or no opas

    What are the pros and cons of removing the OPAS system on the 2006 RXP's??
    Does it really handle better? Worse, can it turn sharper?

    thanks,

    opas

    Handles much better and faster without. Put a good set of sponsons on with it.

    Take the OPAS off.

    I would not buy a set of sponsons, just lower your own around 23mm they are just as good as any you will buy.

    Get pro series block offs if you plan on going over 75 to eliminate porpoising. One other thing eliminating the opas does is it allows you to run thru hull exhaust which sounds great.

    I going to run it box stock for its first race next weekend, but I might do the OPAS block off this week to get it to do the bouys better, What is the best way to lower the stock sponsons??

    To lower the sponsons all you need to do is to take them off mark the hull directly below the original holes, drill them out and then re-mount the sponsons. You will need to seal the old holes with waterproof sealer. I would put masking tape on the hull so it easier to mark the hull and it will also help when drilling to stop the drill slipping.

    For recreational use I would take them down 20mm, for more aggressive cornering I would take them down 25mm.

    Now come the hard part which is holding on the ski will now really grip in corners and the rear end will not side out as before.
