    Smile New Speeds

    Greetings All,

    Just got back from vacationing on Lake Marion in Manning, SC. I have a new best of 71.7 MPH on my Stg I RXP. Believe it or not I never had perfect conditions & I was only able to make about 4 - 5 good runs due to traffic and/or limited testing areas. Ski averaged 71.5 on Garmin etrex GPS and yes I tested in both directions.

    The ski ran great but I feel certain there is more speed to be found in ideal conditions. I'm happy for now but I'm already thinking about Stg II and/or the "Green" wheel .

    Test Data:

    Hour Meter - 20
    Air Temp - 88+
    Water Temp - 86
    Rider Weight - 190
    Humidity Level - Low
    Wind - 5 ~10
    Gas - 1/2 tank
    Rider Position - Superman
    Water Conditions - Slight ripple to light chop

    I even made 1 run on the wife's bone stock GTI, with a 1/2 tank of gas against the wind I clocked a new best of 55.3.

    I attached a few pics of my skis, our rental & Lake Marion for your viewing pleasure .

    Yeah I'm def addicted to speed but I was trying to enjoy the ski this summer as is since it's running so well. Of course as soon as I get beat I'll probably be visiting Jerry's online store .

    I purchased new Sept '06 from a local dealer & where did you get 11 hrs? My post says 20. I live in Sunny SC .

    I don't make a habit of buying used cars etc & I [email protected]#$ sure wouldn't buy a used RXP after reading about the ceramic failures and not knowing if repaired the right way . Peace of mind is everything to me .

    Thanks man wish it was ours. The land alone is valued over $200,000 . It's really a beautiful place to visit if you ever get a chance. Heck, shoot me an e-mail & dinner is on me .

    Cool man i just thought for some reason , you bought it used cause my buddy just sold his machine like 2 weeks ago, and your mods and your machine looks identical to his and he sold it with like 12hrs on it or something like that so. Cool tho! , and nice numbers with your mods!
