    Wasn't the RXP based on the RX hull with a new top deck? I read the RXX did 70 out of the box. RXP 215 does 68.

    I just searched the RXX. everyone says right around 67mph, which is faster than I would have thought.

    Ah yeah, This ski is the original bad ass. I always heard 70. How they were able to sell it dispite the "gentleman's agreement" with the Coast Guard was requiring a racer's card at time of purchase.

    yeah, I don't know about any of that. My xp runs a solid 59mph and I put a spanking on my buddies 00 RX. he passed me like a mile up river, thing had maybe 1 or 2 mph on me. that why when you said they could run with the rxp I was like what? add 30hp and it becomes a rocket?

    You are talking about a regular RX as opposed to an RXX. No offense, but an rxx would spank a stock xp. They did not exceed the 65mph cap as set up from factory, but change out the nozzle rings and it would do close to 68. A few other cheap mods and easily do 70. It wasnt just the 30 extra horse that made them faster.. scat pump, trued and lightened hull, scat nozzles...the list goes on. The rxp hull is completely different from rx hull btw

    RX and RXX are completely different animals. RXX came with twin pipes and 14vein Skat pump just to name a few. My stock RXX ate any stock RXP/RXPX alive in holeshot and midrange. Topend was about the same but the RXP couldn't make up the 10 boat lengths after the holeshot. Also the RXX was lighter then the RX.

    However, the RXX was pretty much maxed out at 70-72 and the RXP has much more potential when modded.
