    VXR SPONSONS Riva verses Tbm ?

    Just about to order up the Riva Sponsons from Green Hulk when I came across the TBM sponsons.
    Who has tried both? and what are your opinions on the two designs?

    If the design is the same as the SHO/FZR (which they probably are), the blade is too small and is not as adjustable. I have seen a RIVA sponson snap in half on during a race. But the blade is the same material as the TBM material. TBM allows for more adjustable setting and is a larger blade.

    Anyone else with experience care to comment? Abracadabra reported huge improvements when replacing his tabs.

    TBM says the little cut outs on the bottom help reduce drag. Has anyone tried these yet? Im gonna call TBM later .. I bought their lightend flywheel a couple of years ago for my mod rn sj and I was impressed with the engineering. It was significantly lighter than the jetenetics .

    Yes, I use them on my FZR and am about to install them on my VXR. They are by far the best sponsons I have ever used
