    GTR 215 vs RPX-X 260

    Hey guys,

    we recently brought a GTR and over New Years went away with 9hrs on it. Met up with a few other PWC owners and managed to have a ride of a 2014 RXT-X 260. What a weapon. Owner said to go have some fun with my wife on our GTR 215. Of course a straight line race eventuated. Below are the results

    Good question. All I can say is wife got the holeshot and kept it over the distance raced. I will admit I would have caught her over a longer distance as the GTR taps out at 106km/h vs the 260's 113km/h.

    That looks like a RXT to me...

    Both Machines over 5 hrs but under 10hrs so are in the same boat so to speak. The way it come about was RXT owner snapped a tow rope and sucked it up before he could shut it off. We towed him back in and I cut the rope off the shaft and inspected carbon seal for damage. As appreciation he said to take it for s spin. And here we are. I did not expect our GTR to do what it did. To maybe get the hole shot but be hauled in and neck and neck with RXT just nosing ahead

    Ok just an update with 22hrs on the clock we managed to come across another RXT-X on the weekend on our local dam. We had been running up and down the waterway having a bit of fun watching the other PWC users out enjoying the water. After a while the RTX-X owner came out to play. He was accelerating past me a few times and on the last time as he went past I decided to chase. After hauling him into about 10 boat lengths he realised what was going on and opened it up and a race eventuated. Whilst behind at the start I was gaining slowly and got to within 1 boat length when he turned off. Cant wait to have a standing start race again with another 260. Our GTR is either a freak or they really are a weapon.
