    Yep I like that "stupid fast" thats about the best way to explain it! I got one that will run away from my RXP..... I'm still trying to figure out what "fast" to call it?

    the question drills down to "bttek/jerry for service, or Piranha or seadoo centre for service?"

    I bet piranha is great but shipping a bit much.
    I've just heard too many good things about brian and jerry to consider other options. Although "C" kit might be different answer since there is no stage2 Rude to compete with it yet.

    The B-kits are running billet wheels which have been known to flex and cause touchdowns. The Rude is using a cast wheel which is a little heavier, but it will not flex like a billet wheel, so the chance of a touchdown is reduced. I guess one thing that is nice about the billet wheels is that they are anodized so if you ride in salt water conditions it won't corrode, so I hear. Performance wise they are the same. Personally I would go with the Rude here in the states because you have closer service if you need it and the Rude is less $$$ because of the high shipping charges involved with the B-kit.

    "service if u need it"

    here's another side of that coin... what service could u need? anything that would destroy the housing or impeller is essentially clutch related which is an OEM product which is known to be problematic.

    so i really dont foresee that anyone would ever need service that is covered by the mfg since 99% of the damage that CAN occur is clutch related...

    I can only give my opinion on the B-kit. I saw 13.5 summer to 14p.s.i winter of boost on my RXP and the acceleration was just crazy.
