    Sponson advise

    I have a 2004 GTX with a stage 2 kit I am wanting to turn better but don't want to loos any MPH. What is the best sponson to go with on a 3 seater? Have been thinking of R&D or Worx just wanted to get some input from others.
    Thanks,

    Longer steering nozzle will help-- like the GTX 185, which is about 15 mm longer. Grinding out the inside shelfs also helps. Look at the R&D-- it is like the GTX without the shelfs. Putting the OPAS back on, adjusting the paddles correctly, making sure they are going up and down when they should and running the longer, modified nozzle will really surprise you. You can also play with the 1 time trim adjustment to the longer steering nozzle which gives you maybe 4 degrees of trim I personally do not like the "feel" of aftermarket sponsons on these skis-- I only rode an 04 RXP with a set of Rivas. The ski had very little low speed steering, but when it did turn it was excessive and unpreditable.

    If you can't put the OPAS back on for what ever reason, the nozzle won't be enough-- drop the stockers or after market spoonsons and the nozzle.
