Thread: R&D or Riva?

  1. #1

    R&D or Riva?

    Which grate will improve hookup/acceleration in chop, and scrub the least top speed?

    R&D aquavein claims increased accel in chop and a 1mph gain but i'm not buying it.

    Suppose so. 2011 GTS-130. Boat mostly on erie so its always wavy, so i want better hookup in chop(compared to stock).... but with the very smallest loss of top speed in case I take the ski to a calm water lake.

    I dont have any experience with that ski, but I sure someone that does will chime in. Also most grates nowadays will atually add some speed while increasing hookup.

    Thats what i've heard.

    Its the 2011 GTI with no reverse/brake or step. Less weight Actually I am very impressed with the ski. It's way faster than I thought, and faster than my XP800 as well.

    Top speed only a couple miles an hour. But acceleration is night and day. So torquey. I honestly believe that it has more than 130hp. Because it only has 20 more than my XP800 (granted the XP is slightly lighter)

    Now, my Xp was bone stock. Compression 150 - 150

    My XP is not modded to much, but it runs 59mph and will come outta the hole right next to a stock rxp215 until about 40mph. I'd be shocked if a GTS was beating my XP.

    Yeah my xp is bone stock. You have a shaved head and a prop. My xp does 53ish. All I can tell you every time I raced my xp with my bud driving I significantly out accelerated it.
