    Best year rxt-x

    My current ride is a RXT with x-charger, 42’s and Riva air and thru hull. I would like to upgrade to a newer RXT-260 or RXT-X with the S3 hull and IBR. I’ve read some years had the pump bolted to the ride plate – not sure what years and if this was good or not. There was something about screw in drive shafts vs c-clip?? And it seems there is an issue with the IC. Which year ski and model would be the best? Does anybody know of any good deals?

    Buy Shrabbers 2008 hull and swapp all your stuff into it. BOOM RXT-X on the cheap. You don't need iBR. The s3 is a killer hull, however

    Plus the 08/09 TX hulls are lighter than RXT's...

    Cool

    12 + just change out the i/c and rip on.

    08-09 x 255 models are near bullet proof but they don't have the hull your looking for.

    10's-11's have pumps that bolt to ride plate..
    10's have "driveshaft issues" which were fixed by going back to the old clip setup..
    11's+ Can have intercooler issues.. (180+ hours on mine..so far so good)
    10's-11's had an issue with the pump bolts loosening up .. issue has been resolved..
    12's+ pump bolts the "old way"

    hope that helps..

    I have the Riva Gen 3 in my 2011 rxtx, i love the intercooler, it preforms really well and its a direct fit for replacing the stock intercooler

    Thanks for your reply, but there are no good reviews of Riva.
