    No Wheel...Need New Mod!!!

    whats up everyone? the SC is in good hands with Jerry right now getting the bearings and washers finally changed on my '06 RXP. i was gonna have him put in the new GREEN charger wheel but I see that they are not in right now so....I need to get something else to satisfy my horrible addiction! I would like some opinions from you all on what i should get...should it be a different charger wheel? riva blockoffs? plate skegs? sponsons? or anything else? check out what I have done below and give me your thought on what I should get to match up with my current mods. THANKS A LOT!!!!!

    If you want a new wheel that fits in your stock housing get the Rotax High Boost wheel. Ride plate skegs and RE OPAS block offs are a good start. It really depends on how much $$ you're looking to spend..

    I would wait on the green wheel if I was you. The difference in acceleration between it and the Rotax wheel is BIG. Not to mention significant cost savings as well.
    Depending on what your short/long term goals are will determine what you want to do next.
    Skegs, RE blockoffs make a nice impact on the handling of the ski.

    I would've suggested the Green Wheel too (even though I haven't tested it like you have ) BUT it's not available yet and it sounds like he already sent the s/c to Jerry. Unless he wants to pay shipping and installation twice or let his s/c sit with Jerry for a while I would just go with the Rotax.

    Because he has the ONLY green wheel (that I know of) in existance. He has had it for a while now.

    how much does the rotax wheel go for? i dont want to spend any more than what i was going to on the green wheel. i've been looking at the block-offs and i cant decide which ones, riva or the racing engineering kit. any difference in the two?

    Because Steve received the first prototype for testing. After i tested it i wanted an unbiased opinion on it so i sent it to him.

    Im hope to have the first batch of these in 2 weeks.

    RE extends the B/O further back and is more effective. The rotax wheel is $100 more than the Green charger. If you don't mind the down time then wait for the Green
