    To drill relief holes or not to drill

    I have read through the threads from 2008-2009 concerning bucking and over stuffing issues on the 2008 RXP-X. I have one with a fizzle, 15/22 impeller, a worx grate and the stock nozzle, and a pump wedge that runs 72-73 with no issues. However, I am doing some mods this weekend and expect to get in the 75 mph range. For those of you that have experience, should I drill holes in the grate/pump shoe to prevent over stuffing? I can't find any recent posts on this and want to make sure that the direction/ advice has not changed. I don't want to get tossed at 75, but I also am not excited about drilling holes in my boat.

    You are ok at those speeds with a stock rxpx nozzle. You don't need any holes.

    No need for drilling the holes at those speeds, with that grate look out if you ever plan on running at 78 or faster when chopping the throttle.
