    One final rxp question.

    I am getting a RXP, If I buy one now, i get it cheap and big rebates the 2007, or should i wait til 2008, for the rxp with metal washers.

    Is there any speed difference in the two?

    What are the odds of buying a RXP and having the ceramic washers mess up your engine?

    I know im a newbie and ask stupid questions but please anwer thanks.

    the main question, should i buy one now at 10,200 or wait til 08 and get it for 11,600

    Ceramic Washers are bad once you start to Modify a ski. Not everybody agrees with this, but I have over 150 hours on my ski with ceramic washers. I am switching to Metal Washers now that I am going to Stage 2.

    Not if you're not willing to change the washers to the metal ones.

    That's totally false!!!!!!! Look at how many washer failures have occured on here to stock skis. In fact most of them are stock skis because the guys that modify have enough sense to swap the washers. Just look at how many '07 SC washers were taking a dump before the 10 hour mark!!! Rediculous!!!

    But hey, it's your engine and your ride season. For only $90 ($140 + shipping if Jerry does it) and a piece of mind I would swap out the ceramics before I even started the ski.

    if i change the washers, is it still under waranty.

    is it hard to change the washers?

    is the easiest way to send the supercharger to jerry?

    Some dealers will honor your warranty. I wouldn't worry about it in any case. If you don't have the tools or experience...easiest to send it to Jerry.

    Figure having him install them as inexpensive insurance for your ski and peace of mind.
