    Same Mods Whats A Faster Hull RXP Or The X

    Hi guys

    Its been a very long time since i posted hello to some old friends I ve made here on G/H that i have nt spoken in ages how all doing well and safe.

    Guys Ive been out of touch on sit down need a little refresh which hull is faster out of the RXP or the RXP-X 2008-2011 with both skis running the same mods same grate boost cooler ECU props nozzle sizes so on.

    I am guess the RXP is faster has this been tested i am trying to work out if the bigger tunnel in the X actually cause speed loss or does is increase speed with the right prop grate and nozzle size.

    So 2 different skis with the same mods ride down the line no which is faster.

    Glad to see the site is still going strong Jerry.

    The rxp is faster then the x regardless mod for mod and tuned properly. The X holeshots better and has better hookup, I would say it gets to top speed quicker but the rxp hull will be faster top end.

    I wasn't aware that they used different molds for the two hulls. You guys sure it's not all in the equipment?

    Yeps. The 08+ has smaller intake than later years. Hence why x boats in the what was it 74mph area and up started to get over stuff.

    the rxp-x has a larger pump tunnel than the standard rxp. that is why they stuff, because a lot more water is being pushed through the pump.

    Decisions decisions on what to build.

    For a ski that won t get used much like 6 times a year might be a cheaper option to build an RXP as i am not after much apart from high speed riding in good conditions.
