    Is an R&D Hydroforce nozzle worth it?

    Will my 96xp benefit from an r&d hydroforce nozzle. It is the seadoo 85mm. Could it possibley slow it down with a stock motor? I know it gives better turning and manueverabilty, but is it worth it at all?

    I used one back in my race days, they looked cool and every XP800 had one. I think the interchangeable rings was a good thing to have. You could "tune" your holeshots/top-end speed with the rings. I liked the R&D trim tabs too..they helped keep the hull planted on the race course.

    If you get it, start with the OEM i.d. for the nozzle. Just my opinion.

    skip it and buy you a r&d nozzle setup with the 85/88 setup. Then get you an XO prop. Thats your pump/prop combo that works best for the 96xp's.
