    RXTX AS 2012+ rear trim tabs retrofit on 2011 ??????

    hi guys, i bought a 2011 rxtx AS last year and i am wondering if i can buy the new adjustable rear trim tabs from the 2012 + rxtx AS and somehow bolt them on my hull. i know that the new hull probably has the threads already in it, but i am curious if anyone has looked into this and if there is a difference with or without the tabs anyways??

    second question would be if the sponsons are a direct fit also?

    I put the 2012 sponsons on my 2010 but I had to drill new holes Click image for larger version.

    Do you think the riva pro sponsons would fit from the older machines? They seem to be the same bolt pattern as original

    btw great job! Looks good

    The biggest difference I have noticed is when pulling our massive tube around the lake that the ass end doesn't get pulled side to side when you whip it

    Does it turn better? Cut into water sooner when turning?
