    Any cheapish mods I've missed out on? Rxt 215

    Just wondering if there's any mods that are fairly cheap and useful that I've overlooked on my 2008 RXT. My mods so far are:

    SS Solas wearring
    Solas 13/18 prop
    Solas Intake grate
    R&D Pump seal
    Also got an external IC from a 2009 rxpx 255 on it's way

    Right now I'm running at 8100-8140 rpm getting 68mph on the gps. Looking at getting either the X charger+42 lbs injectors when it's time for SC rebuild or go with the et127 wheel, but that will be in the autumn.

    Ride plate holes filled and reverse bucket trimmed. +1 on the ET127 wheel and 42's. With the Ex IC, it will give it some punch. You can also remove the stock air intake. Do a DIY 4" front air with filter. You will need to get a catch can with that also. But can all be done for about 100$ or so. Or see if Fizzle has any more of them.

    Seen alot of people fill the ride plate holes, what's used to fill them?

    And how do you trim the reverse bucket, I've searched but couldn't find anything useful other than other people saying they've done it.

    How much could I hope to gain from both of these mods, 1mph?

    Oh and also, what's the rev limit on this machine?

    Any kindof under water puddy. Put a piece of rope around the head of the bolt and a piece of tape on the head then fill with epoxy. leave it a little high and let harden. Once hard, file and sand it flush. As for bucket, theres a half moon lip that hangs down. Cut tit so the half moon goes into the bucket. Should be around 1mph gain.

    You should be 8100rpm.
