    RXP-X lean at low speed - is this the cause?

    Hi y'all,

    The winglet on the RXP-X 260 sponsons are likely to be the cause for the lean at low speed. If one catches more than the other, it will push the hull in the water. At speed, they are completely out of the water unless you are turning.

    Is this likely?

    Yes you will notice a slight lean to the right until you become use to the hull. Wait till you ride two up on it. You'll feel quite unstable under 30MPH until you get use to controlling the hull.

    You have no ideal yet what that hull can truly do yet. That is why I said I'd be very careful with the cold water temps and seeing what it can do. T3 can take most recreational riders and make him feel like pro in a matter of minutes. Everyone always begins to think there better then they are.......until they push it a littler further.......and go flying. The hull can hold turns at speeds way beyond what most recreational riders can even come close to achieving on other skis. For the pros there is a reason why CC races are dominated by the RXPX.

    Yeah it's just a function of the hull design. I'm not sure if its a shallower V or if its because it has a larger radius on the keel but below 25mph without perfect balance it rides on one side of the hull (leaning). As I've said before, 95% of my riding is 2 up and riding with other PWCs in rough water is brutal if they can't maintain a speed above 25mph. Hard on the back to lean for hours on end. Normal behaviour, not a result of the sponsons at least as far as my experience.

    No.
    I have an S3 hull, and a T3 hull, both have the same sponsons. The S3 hull does not lean.

    It is the deep v of the hull design..It rides on the sides of the v until about 30mph and then it sits up straight..
