RXP comes unhooked too easily, opinions on setup?
So now that my ski has been finished and I have been out a few times, it is apparent that it comes unhooked much more easily than other skis around me. It just wants to go airborne over slight chop and gets unhooked. I have to run the VTS full down to try and keep it planted but even then it can still do it. Is this the nature of the beast or is the combination just off ? I am maxing out around 80mph if that helps
SFR ride plate (filled holes)
Riva intake (properly trued and fitted)
Riva Wedge (2*)
Rive Extension rod (8 1/8" center to center)
stock RXP nozzle

Probably more like the nature of the beast. Going from my 08 to my 2012 is like night and day.

the ride plates build for speed have lift built into them.... combine that with your wedge and IMO, GREAT for speed, BAD for hoookup!

I may pull the wedge after I can get my hands on a stock VTS rod and see how that works.

I have had the same problem. Ski just seems to want to fly above the water. It has to be like glass on the water before I can hit top speeds. Guys with stock skis can almost keep up with me because I unhook so easily. Kind of annoying. Maybe thats why the new RXP is close to the length of the RXT. I know driving a GTX, it barely comes unhooked.
