I rode a RXT last weekend in Havasu *pics*
Nils brought along his brand new stock RXT for me to ride. I was impressed! It pulls hard and I was able to get 67.1 to hold on the GPS in superman position. Not bad for a bone stock ski. Oh, the thing plowed right through rough chop and i was able to hold WOT. I could never do that on my RXP.

I do on mine and smoke my friend on his RXT! But the RXT is a drier ride. And you won`t be winded after the run.

for all those nay-sayers that think our RXTs can't haul ass i love my RXT, and for my type of riding the RXP is just not seaworthy enough for me. glad to see you got similar GPS speeds that i've gotten... i've found that they are only 1-2 mph slower than a stock RXP
the RXT can turn.... it can spin.... i can submarine... in no shape way or form would i match the word bouys or carving with an RXT... i wish it could tho but i think handling enhancements will decrease it's top speed in the long run

I rode a demo stock RXT at FRS #3. I wasn't very impressed, I liked how it cut through the rough stuff... much more planted that the RXP, but its also much heavier and bigger than the RXP. It lacked power, I thought it would pull harder than it did. I could only get 62 (gps) and 7850 rpm out of it in less than desirable conditions. I think something might of been wrong with this particular ski. As I was bringing back in i got a "HI TEMP" alarm. Others that rode it that day said the same thing.
So with that being said, I'm not going to judge all RXTs just based on this one, if I get another chance to ride one I will.
Oh yeah on a side note. During the drag races, a stock 2006 GP1300R (with only 3hrs on it) raced a stock 2005 RXT. The RXT won by about 2-3 boat lengths.

mgo... you have got to ride my RXT oneday, lol. Hopefully i plan on driving down to the gulf with it oneday very near future, but i got myself a good one. pulls like a mother and i hit 67-68 mph all the time at 8150 rpms (STOCK!) ... NY cooler water probably helps with that tho
i ride a ton of RXPs and all different skis, and in the power department it's hard to favor the RXP over the RXT.... aside from nimbleness and handling. they are only about 10" differences in length and less than 100 pounds weight difference if i recall correctly. but that added weight and length i think helps it stay planted for a sick holeshot. i've holeshotted severl stock RXPs to tell ya the truth... unless they don't know jack about the VTS positioning for racing...i've gone up against a RR stage 2 and yea, it rips me apart and i wave goodbye
get on a well performing RXT and u'll forget all about that ride u had at FRS 3

LOL... I knew it wouldn't take long for shibby to respond.
Yeah I figure that RXT at FRS was just a dog.

The person on the RXP must not know what the hell they are doing. A RXT can never beet a RXP out the hole. And on the straight run unless really rough,,,the RXT will walk it everytime. Make your way down here and I`ll put my butt on the fence against any RXP. Its gettin cooler down here too.
