    RE Blockoffs

    So far we have 16 sets delivered but only a few people have posted how well they work, how about everyone who got them let us know. Any speed loss on smooth or rough water? Stability? Acceleration?

    If my Rotax thru hull and front motor mount show up by this weekend I'll happily share my results afterwards. No good direct compare from a performance standpoint from me though as they went on at the same time the rest of my Riva Stage II plus hood went on...

    I will be able to test the handling aspect of it though...especially the porpoising I was previously experiencing with the stock sponsons and OPAS nearing 73...

    I installed a Riva stage 2 kit at the same time also. I took it out an ran it to 70mph with no porposing at all sitting all the way back. The boat was very stable, but the water was like glass. Before it would porpose when I was in this position at 69mph. My clutch began slipping, so had the take the boat out and have an 06 upgrade installed. I will be testing it again in the next few days and will post results.

    What did it fell like when the clutch was slipping, just want to know because I'm going to wait until mine is slipping or end of season to get the 06 on warranty. I only have 40 hours.

    You won`t have jack out the hole. You`ll know when its slipping if you don`t wanna use the torque wrench. I know I knew.

    I`m waiting on the clutch kit to come to dealer and waiting on the rr impeller and waiting on my 58mm throttle body and waiting on my angle to mount my xpower. At least last night I mounted the Riva sponsons. They deffinately sit lower than stock. There`s no way you can tell me these things won`t have lifting and handling qualities that outperform the stock ones. So I`ll now know exactly how my RE`s work when the ski is all back together. But it`ll be a different machine then too.

    HOSS, you will love the way your ski handles with the RE's and Riva sponsons.

    ON RAILS!!!
