So frustrated!!! Does anyone but me own one? 2005 GTX Limited
Been searching, researching, and all I get is nada. Does anyone out there own a 2005 GTX Limited? I cannot find any videos, only 2004 / 2005 reviews and nearly nothing in the way of actual data. Did I buy a ski that sold a total of 1 for 2005?
Everyone I ask seems to tell me to look at the 2005 RXP - but that is not what I bought and I would love to see the ski in action, or at least hear from someone who owns one. Does anyone have any links to videos, personal testimony or experience articles handy? This is so frustrating!

Below is a List of your "Limited Package". Other than that, it is the same ski as a 2005 RXT 215 HP. Same hull, engine, SC, IC, all parts! So any topics and discussions about 2005-2009 RXT's are basically the same, (not 2008+ RXT-X's 255/260 HP). There are countless discussions about RXT's on this forum!!!!!!!

I really had no idea that I had a "pretty" RXT... I have been searching and trying to find people with my ski because I wanted to get real world opinions and reviews from actual riders.
Now - Granted, I had a "few" cocktails last night when I posted this (I tend to do that sometimes when I post), but I am still shocked by the lack of real info on this damn thing. I thought I bought a cool ski and figured it must be a popular model as it was the limited package. There are thousands of videos and articles on the RXT, yet I seem to find very little on mine. I was under the impression that the hull was the same, and that is where the similarities stopped. I have been told that the ECU is programmed differently, the torque is different, and the overall level of comfort and handling is different. Granted I was only able to get a couple of opinions, but I really was hoping for a lot more information from a ski that was supposedly top of the line for it's era. Sorry for the rant, but I dropped a good amount of coin on this thing and have yet to even ride it (bought it in the winter). I will gladly buy beers for anyone annoyed by the ranting!

Really, your "pretty" RXT I mean GTX, is just a prettier color combination with a real nice Garmin GPS / glove box holder, and depth finder. Which BTW, several of us have this GPS / box lid on our GTX/RXT's also as an option.
SSSOOOOOOOOO, your just just like the rest of us.......plain ole........3 seat couch.......with some extra lipstick!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now stop your whining and start the mods....................beotche!!!!!
