    2012 Rxp-260 0-60 time?

    Just bought a new 2012 Rxp-x and haven't been able to get it out on the water because of the Michigan cold weather.

    Anybody know what the approximate 0-60 time is. I was in to sports cars years ago and just want to know how the acceleration compares.

    Thanks.

    You're thinking of the hype of 0-60 in 2.9 seconds when the 08 P-X first came out. Not sure these bigger boats are going to be able to keep that true in stock form.

    That was the 0-50 in 2.9 that they were advertising.

    I was testing my near totally stock 2012 RXPX. The only mod is a fully tuned CMD.

    From a dead stop in neutral to 60 takes right at 6 sec. This was tested using a QStarz GPS running .2 sec resolution recorded with a Android running Trackmaster. The 100 MPH Yamaha that was also testing at my lake was running 17 MPH to 82 MPH in 4 sec in less than perfect water and 3/4 of a tank of fuel.

    Here is the log from my ski. On the top is the data coming off the Jegs GPS and logged on the CMD. On the bottom is the same pull as recorded by the Trackmaster setup.

    I will add the data trace to the post tonight.

    I need to come down there. These trips to the Ozarks are wearing me out

    Here is a plot of speeds between my RXPX vs a full on 100 MPH Yamaha race ski. Get a load of just how much faster the race boat is in 4.6 sec.

    Hmmm, I find it pretty hard to believe 0-60 takes 6 seconds. Years ago when Jerry first published the musclecraft shoot out, the 08 Tx would pull 0-60 in 4.6. I haven't seen or ridden a 2012 model, but I couldn't imagine them to be that much slower.

    With the new datalogger you can log 0-60 very easy. ( and a lot more stuff)
