Thread: rxpx addiction
10-01-2007, 09:29 AM #1
After realizing I can't go a day without reading thru this website. I have found that I have a serious addiction here. When will seadoo release more info on the rxpx?
This website is my crack and knowing when more info will come out (or drug dealer delivery date) will hopefully allow me to return to the real world and work until at least that said date.
A few things im interested in hearing about:
will it have a graco or any strainer
whats the impeller pitch
when will we see aftermarket mods specific to the x (ie thru hull exhaust)
what are the stock size injectors
what will the stock ecu be capable of
are there different sponsons
will a 4" air intake fit (due to the ext ic)
what size diameter is the nozzle
will rxp Mline seat covers fit the X, (BRP says its a lower "racing" seat)
And more importantly, how is it that a modded rxp with about 250hp can doo 75mph, but a stock rxpx with an aftermarket grate and impeller has little chance of doing so. I hear some of the guys saying no way due to the larger intake, but the little voices in my head say if you can get more water in and have the power to push it out, you will go faster!
As you can see these are extremely important questions that need answers, and since I want to sleep sometime this winter and not have my head spinning at night, just knowing there is a date will at least ease my mind temporarily.
Thank you for the counseling session guys, I already feel much better. Better go get another cup of coffee, these shakes are a bithc.

Lots of people are addicted. I was thinking about starting a support group to help people kick the addiction!

Mike you need to do that and also have a session about visiting this site way to much in one day.

You need to realize that the faster a ski goes, the SMALLER intake opening, and more restrictive grate it needs, to achieve the best top speed. Almost all skis that are going 75+ mph will gain speed from reducing the intake opening, NOT making it bigger ... at that speed, the pumps are overstuffing, water is getting forced in faster than it can be processed, and this actually hinders performance. Large, open intakes/grates help with takeoff, but reduce top speed.
Its all about tradeoffs. Clearly the intake/grate and impeller on the X are geared to takeoff, not top speed. So, when those parts are swapped to parts that might hit 75 mph, the takeoff will be less aggressive. There is no magic here ... if you take an X and make it hit 75 mph, you will basically have duplicated a Stage 2, and if your top speed is the same (75 mph), your takeoff is also going to be very similar to a standard RXP with a stage 2.

Most people wouldn't know how to modify (or want to) a pwc. They will buy the X simply because it is the fastest/best/most expensive out there. The Rxp-x will also have a full factory warranty. You may have dealer/warranty trouble with your Stg. 2/3 Rxp.
The larger intake area will probably help alot of the Closed Course racers in the chop/on the start---many of these boats will be purchased to race in a "stock" class.
IMO----there will always be someone on the newer/bigger/faster bandwagon; & always people beating them (sometimes only temporarily) with the old school stuff that is modified/tuned perfectly. Cars, boats, planes-anything.
Just my .02
