2005 RXT - Season 1 to Stage 1
This was my first season for my RXT and I'm pretty satisfied with it. Also got to race a stock RXT and blew it away so feel pretty good.
Stock it went 63-64. It's now at 67.
13.5/17.5 Impros Solas
2.5 wedge,center bushing
4" intake to seat and 4" attwood fan out rear and 4" air inlet opposite of gas pump hole.
free flow exhaust.
Here are some of the things I did and I'll post pictures later.
I made a 88.25 plastic bushing using jb-weld and using it with my R&D 2.5 seem to work the best. I did back to back testing on the plastic bushing at 89.5(stock),87(flipped),88.25(centered). Amazingly it didn't do anything for the top speed. It mostly changed your holeshot and handling. The 89.5 was too bouncy and lifted too much on the holeshot. The 87 rode too flat and didn't turn very well. The 88.25 was a balanced between the 2.
I also made a .4 inch nozzle spacer and gave it a 2.5degree angle to match my wedge. This put my rpm about 50-100 lower and added about .4-.5 to my topspeed. I think I'm going to remove it though and just use the extra 100rpm for a repitch. I might sand it down to keep the 2.5 degree for better water flow.

Here are some of the pics.
Outwear's phone number is845-246-3086. Just ask for the water resistant pre-filters and give them a size.

Here is my speaker mod that turns your hood into a speaker for under $100. I have the wires going into the glove box. It's pretty loud when we are laying out in the water and you don't even need to lift up the hood. People start looking around when they hear me cruising up with music playing. I put speakers on both sides of the hood.

you have really done some cool things to that ski!

how well do those speakers sound? that would be sweet for the no wake zones, which can be long and boring!

This season I'm going with the thru hull, a needed repitch(I've got about 100-150 to knock off already) and then I'm waiting for the whole SC thing to pan out and IC comparison before I jump on those. I'm hoping to get close to breaking 70. Also want to add another fan pulling from the 4" tube and put my air intake back in my hull. Then put battery and boost monitors on.

I use it when idling and it messes with peoples minds they are like wtf is that a ski playing music.
Most of the time I use it when my wife and I find a creek run and we will pull the wire rafts out and kind of bask in the sun with the music playing and drink a beer next to a floating cooler. (it turns my 3 seater into a pontoon boat). Batteries last about 30 hours!
I thought about hooking in a subwoofer I saw that was rechargable but didn't want the extra weight in the front of the ski. The speakers basically turn the whole front hood into a speaker(it's made to connect to pictures/walls and turn them into speakers).
It's not bad for around 50 dollars and minor wire running.
Also works great when your in a creek/cove with your girl and a pontoon boat wants to claim it's territory for fishing. Turn up the music , by by boat. Then you can get back to offshore drilling

Could you tell me more about them speakers. I was thinking of doing something like that with my rxp. What brand are they and where can I order them and how hard are they to run. Thanks in advance.

I put this in my glove box where I can hook my iriver mp3 player to it and also change the amplifier volume.
$20 for 2 speakers (comes with wires that hook into the amplifier above)
I put these in the hood they need a surface to hook to which they turn that surface into a speaker. I ran the wires into the glove box then just used electric tape over the wire to hide/manage it to the glove box.
$50 dollars and you have a sound system that turns your front hood into a big speaker. I wrapped my speakers in wrap but I don't think you even need to do that. Water doesn't get inside the hood. Just electric tape the connections into the amplifier and speakers.
Post how it goes with the rxp I'd like to know your results...
