    ET18 & Riva Dampener for OffShore

    I am looking for the highest boost & *Reliable* setup for hard offshore riding. I am trying to decide between either an ET18 with a Riva Dampener & Gen III Shaft (Just don't want clutches to be a continuing problem). Or a Turbo setup - no clutches to worry about, but then concerned all of the custom/non OEM stuff holding up well in big water or wave jumping. I do use throttle control (as much as possible), just want to do things right the first time!!

    Could anyone with any positive input with either setup, please post up their experiences. Or just shoot me a PM if you are still killing clutches with the ET18 & Dampener.

    Thanks

    well, i have used the E1 wheel and the H1 wheel , and from my experience if you want your clutch to last DO NOT use the H1 wheel !!! i ride in really rough water's conditions (ocean)
    i used the riva sc shaft and riva dampener with 2013 clutch , and my clutch only lasted for 30 hours maybe less
    but when i was using E1 wheel my clutchs were lasting for a good reasonable time about 140 to 170 hours
    remember its always rough water's when im riding

    now i removed the H1 wheel cause its not for a Dailey use, maybe ill sell it
    im planing to get the ET 18 or ET 15
    i asked jerry about the two wheels , he adviced me to get the ET 18 cause i have the riva 12 vein 160mm pump and prop
    with my E1 wheel i couldnt turn the 160mm prop
    it all dependes on your set up to choose the wheel

    but if you want your clutch to last and have a good power , i think u should get the ET 15 wheel instead of going turbo 5.500 $

    Done. sorry to hijack op. No experience in either but I'd go turbo for reliability if you've got $

    I have tried a few different setups. 160mm liner and 155mm pump I used to get rpm spikes of 12500 with a et15. Tried a 160mm liner and pump and still got similar spikes. I then tried a et18 which to me is a nicer wheel than a et15 whith a dual prop and the lucky 13 cone and the hook up in the surf is much improved and the spikes came down to 9200. I try realy hard to control the spikes on the throttle but found that it was by far the best with that setup.

    Thanks Guys

    That helped to answer things. Going to go ET 18 with an R&D shaft, Riva Dampener, Tial BOV & 160 prop. I figured the H1 would be a clutch killer in the ocean (Although it's a monster for calmer waters). Hopefully I can still get some decent hours out of a 13' clutch.
