    Bucked my RXP today.

    Today was out doing some testing.

    Going 85.4 MPH Hit a slight ripple/wave. And it felt like i was reended.. Ski came up in the air.. Grab bar hit me.. Legs went towards the sky. I came back down hit my knee.

    I was going to install some reliefs before this too, but i rushed and wanted to do some testing.

    This was using R&D grate, Riva ride plate.

    Scared the daylights out of me! I thought these things were good till over 90?

    Nothing came loose. I tripple checked EVERYTHING. 83 Ring. Only thing i thought of is the speed of the ripple/wave coming at me.. Maybe it was 5-6 mph putting water speed underhull to 90-91?

    Not sure.. Really wish i had installed the reliefs already. I’m fine.. Ski’s fine.. But i stopped and sat for like 10 min... It’s one of those.. Reality checks!

    There are with a modded OEM plate like I tried to explain. Sounds like the plate was to far down and the grate was scraping in to much water with the added angle of the plate. Need to be careful and have someone pace you.

    Plate if flush with hull, as well as the R&D grate.

    So your saying with the JIMs plate i was better off?

    So far i didint gain any speed(+.4mph), lost ablity to turn at high speeds, and now it bucks....

    Shoulda kept the Jims plate!

    I learned quickly, Its all fun and games.. But there is a side to this were serious injury or death can be had.


    Thanks. I guess once you get to the 85+ Range on a rxp.. Its a good saftey net to install some reliefs.
