    Cant figure out whats wrong... Pics attached

    Hi guys,

    Im fairly new at this and just bought my 04 RXP about a month ago. When I launch it hard, it takes a bit for it to go, it feels like a car spinning the tires and then it hooks, indicated speed on the dash has been about 68-70mph depending on water and weather. Same happens on low speed turns when I gun it..

    Previous owner said it had a stage 1 rivas kit minus the intake grate. I know it has the air intake since that's easy to spot.

    I took the pump apart thinking that maybe my issue is coming from the wear ring / prop. I ordered a SS wear ring to get ahead of the game. When I took the pump off it looks like my wear ring is in good shape and also the prop does not look extremely banged up....

    Any ideas or suggestions as to what the issue is?

    Thanks!

    Max Rpm I saw on a hot day (95 degrees plus) was 7750, gas is good, assuming that since I have fueled up several times with 91 octane.... I have put about 15 hours on it since I bought it...

    change plugs and check your slip. Have you checked the oil to make sure it's still liquid? I've seen a few that haven't been changed and it looked like chocolate syrup

    I'll look at the plugs, I changed the oil the first day I got it... .. how do you test for slip on the charger?
