    Moving from 2005 RXT to 2008 rxt-x

    Just wondering what you guys think of my plan. Currently have a almost stock 05 RXT with about 68 hours with a Solas impeller and SC washers preventively changed to steel at 32 hours. I have $6k into it I've had it for a year and have been happy with it. Once I started on this site I found out the 04-06's have hollow valves and snarky flywheel bolts.

    Now that I'm sufficeintly paranoid- and I'm looking for a little more performance but want maxium reliabilty , there'a an 08 rxt-x with 35 hours totally stock for sale for $8k. If I can get it for $7.5k, and assuming I can get $6k for mine, does this sound like a worthwile upgrade for ~$1500??


    Now I read the RXT-X have pump tunnel crack issues.......I just want a fast reliable affordable( ya, I know, you can have only two of those) ski.


    Or should I just keep running what I have and stop worrying?

    the tunnel is fine for a mostly stock ski

    The x models are very reliable.

    I don't think you will get 6k for a 05....
    But there is a sucker born every day...
    Good luck in your venture....

    Prices up here tend to be a little more than your neck of the woods, but you may be right.
