Stage 1 parts question
I was looking at the stage one for my RXT and noticed the RXT has an extra part listed.
RIVA O.P.A.S. Competition Kit
I assume the part is the white clip in the lower left since it's not in the RXP parts picture. What does it do?

Like TennesseeRXP said, The little plastic clips hold the OPAS fins in the up position. On the RXT the OPAS fins move up and down. On the RXP the OPAS fins are at a fix height and do not move up and down. TO see the OPAS fins move up and down on the RXT you can just push up on them. They are spring loaded in the down position.
Water pressure supplied by the pump moves them up. High speed= fins up, lower speed=fins down, pump out of water=fins down.
When the water gets rough and the pump starts to come unhook(out of the water) the fins will drop and cause the OPAS fins to drag for a second.

I'm thinkin about the Riva Stage 1 also, just got back from dive trip to Key Largo, we stopped off and talked with the gang at the Riva shop there. Seems like a pretty good deal, get your three seater to bump 70 mph for about $750 in parts, hate to spend that much for two machines though...
I'll be curious how many others have the Riva kit on their RXT's, I'm gettin the itch...
