    Rxp-1 250x-0

    I don't need to say more, do I?

    Alrighty.

    The 250x has a hell of hole shot but after 100ft or so the RXP (with only a grate) starts to dominate. And yeah I have to take small cheap shot here, I had to tow the 250x back to the dock. For some reason it wouldn't start up. I'll let Kerry tell you what actually happened to the ski.

    I really like the 250x, the looks are a lot better than the RXP IMO. I think once they get the bugs figured out I'll have to buy one.

    That's not a cheap shot, Mike- it's just fact. Not a good start for that kawi anyway... not only losing, but breaking down as well .

    I never really expected them to beat RXP's on the top end- in flat water anyway.

    I know I need a new prop after what happened earlier in the day. We were out on the Indian River, right when we got out I couldn't turn 3000rpm and there was this horrible noise coming from the pump area. Got the ski back on the trailer looked up the intake grate and saw something wedged on the prop and wear ring. I got it popped off and out of the pump area and it was a stick about 1" in diameter, so I think I got a free prop repitch on just the leading edge. Ill have pictures up tomorrow, you can see where the stick rubbed against all of the blades.


    Can we say hole shot who?

    No, they aren't. Read the above post from me. It felt like a lot of prop spin on the launch.

    Interesting...

    Here at the Mark Hahn 300, after lap #1, it was an RXP in 1st and the closest 250 was in fifth... afterlap #2, it was a red 250 1st, red 250 2nd, blue 250 3rd, ? 4th, RXP 5th... long way to go yet, but interesting.

    BTW, by lap three, we were under the London Bridge drinking hot chocolate
