    Newb question... To buy mod RXP or stock RXT-X

    Looking to get a couple Sea Doo's for me and the wife. 1 will be used for wife kids etc, and the other will be mostly my toy.... and I want a fast one. I have found a couple 2 Doo packages that I like, but have a question regarding the boat for me.

    Would you rather have a pro built RXP with the best of everything in/on it. Or a 2010 RXT-X all stock.
    Both boats are under 30 hours and fresh water only.

    Please chime in withPro's and Con's

    Thanks

    That RXP sounds nice, but if the guy won't let you test ride it for an hour or so, pass on it.

    If you want a faster than stock ski the rxp is the way to go, just keep in mind there is upkeep! And depending what style it was built for, it may require even more work, and or may have its quirks.. An rxt is a fast machine and with few mods can be very fast as well... Just depends where you want to go with it...

    But... Being on this site before you even buy... You'll be spending the money eventually... Just buy them both

    For me, it would depend on the mods of the RXP. How much stomach do you have for a bunch of heavy mods vs a bunch of easy "bolt-on" stuff?

    For example, my style for a water toy like this is to stay on the stock RPMs...not interested in blowing up an expensive water toy after spending $1k on a computer to spin it at nearly 9k RPMs

    Yes, it is a nice list but its not everything
    IMO the motor is over built for a rude3 @ 8800 but should work excellent and very fast
    the only ski faster would have to be a turbo!!
    well what does he want for it and how many hours on the rebuild?

    If you whant competition - buy RXP with +++mods.
    If you whant just ride, recreational use, with your family - buy RXT-X.

    RXT-X have more good acceptance for resale. Is more new. Have the new hull.
    This RXP is good if comming with all OEM parts. You install all OEM and sell all this MODs parts. Have a lot of money in performance... Sell RXP and all parts and buy a NEW 2012 260P-X - this is the JET, all others is past...
