What should I buy 2008 RXPX or 92+ gprxp?
Alright guys, need some help before I shell out my savings on my summer toy.
I have my eye set on 2 skis. I can by my friends 2008 Rxpx with 50hrs with trailer for $6,000. or a member here that goes be the name Syk1300, he has a Custom Built GPRXP that does 92 plus for 8,500.
What would you guys buy?
Here are some things I am thinking about. If I buy RXpx and put 2500into it, would it be comparable?
I am only going to have the ski throught the summer. I will sell in August. Which one will be easyer to sell?
I am storing the ski on a floating dock at the local marina. Is there going to be a maintenance issue with Gprxp?
I live in a smal redneck town. I have no one here i can trust to wrench on it. Which one will be more reliable.
The price differnece is not an issue. I can buy the Rxpx and just sale it for 8 grand and buy the GPRXP.
Thanks for any input. Good or bad!

Assuming the PX is a stock ski, an additional $2500 won't even get you close to 92+

There is no way the RXPX will perform close to the GPRXP. But... because you want to ride this summer without issue. I would buy a good known ski from a friend at a great price, before buying a custom built GPRXP from someone I barely know. What year hull is the GPR, engine, mods? These conversions are always a work in progress to me. They always need something. They are not for the guy that just wants a fast ski to ride, it will need work. JMO.

Just want to add. Just change the intake grate to a R&D, if you buy the RXPX than leave it stock. You will have a fun 70 mph ski for the summer.

If you are looking to tinker around for a while go for the GPRXP. if you want to ride this summer without a worry get the RXPX and don't look back....
GPRXPs are a lot of fun, but you need a lot a patience and time for work things out, especially if you are buying a ski that you don't know the history of.

I looked at a few conversions for sale, before deciding just to build my own with Duke. I will have maybe over 15K before I am done, but know I will never stop tinkering with it after I get it running. 8500 is a good price for a well sorted ski thats for sure, but I bet it will still need some work.

In the conversion classifieds it is all laid out. He has it listed for 10,500
