    Riva Pro Series Sponson Adjustment

    I recently ordered the Riva Sponsons from t-tec performance after reading all the favorable comments on this site. I can't remember and have been unable to find the threads that talk about the best mounting position you guys have found on the RXP. I think it was all the way down but I would appreciate your input. It likely will save me alot of trial and error and loctite. Thanks.

    Do they scrub speed all the way down vs all the way up or is there no noticeable difference at any position?

    Back to back tests showed no difference in speed, but all ski's are different. Best thing to do is try them both ways on your ski to see what results you get.

    You'll have no handling if they are all the way up.

    I also noticed no difference in speed.

    I tried them in the middle position on carey's ski and it would spin out when i threw it into a tight turn.

    Down seems to be the popular position.

    Chris: I agree with Jerry. I damn near killed myself cornering with the sponsons all the way up and nopas. Absolutely no speed loss when down.

    Anybody tried the R&D sponsons? Any differences / advantages? Can you adjust them up and down like the riva's? Ive been looking for sponsons and thinking about R&D's..

    The R&D's adjust as well. Most of the Racers like the R&D sponsons better. I think they protrude out further in the back which will help turning.
