    RXT 2007 vs. 2008

    I am thinking of getting a new RXT.. Lots of leftover new 2007's around...
    What are the differences???
    Please include any info on storage, color combo (I ONLY want red/black) of either..
    Performance, Moddability, Fuel consumption, Pump differences, etc!

    IF I go with 2008, I may consider RXT-X.. Just not sure.. I really am into the red and would match my 03 GTX-SC.
    Is the 03 exactly same hull and storage setup as the 07/08's?

    Hmm... I wonder if the regular RXT is going to have the new grate and set-back pump.

    Anyone seen the non X version at the dealers?

    RXT to RXT just 07 -- 08 differences

    OK, I feel like I inadvertently started the apple/orange comparison

    Sooo, I put a call into the dealer and he is going to crawl under a '08 RXT and see if it has the new style grate, and also check for pump set-back. He did say, without looking, that he was pretty certain the '08 RXT has the '05-'07 grate and pump configuration.

    I'll let you all know what I find out.

    They didnt come with the skat setbacks like planned. Not enough available to distibute like the rxx had.
    Believe the inlet is alot bigger though!
    As far as intake differences.
    I would stick with the 07 and buy a skat setback pump, and upgrade to a stage 2 and wala ,IMO better setup than the 08s.. alot cheaper too...oh yeah and a UMI steering...hate the new steering setup...well thats my 2 cents


    These are the differences on the RXP and RXP-X not sure if same on RXT-X
