    Cut or not?

    Question: Should i cut the grate on my RXP-X? If so cut just the outer wings off or the centre as well? Does this effect the holeshot? If the mod works so well, why did SD put them there??????
    Any thoughts Thanks ED

    hey mate. i cut the wings off first. and was just walking away from dads rxtx. then i cut the scoop at clocked 114km on the gps. but since i ride mostly on the bay i took dads scoop bak which just has the wings cut off. is has better holeshot since it doesnt jump out of the water and also turns a bit better.

    I would not cut off the whole scoop, the sides can go but, the main scoop should get the top cut off and the angle lessened with a file. You could probably file the scoop and lessen the angle 5 degrees. If you want, I'll trade you even up for a stock P X grate cut off. And mine is really pretty.


    TRADE ME PLEASE!!!!

    He probably likes the hole shot and rough water hook up of the stock grate i belive once you cut the grate both go out the window. I would have a stock one and a modified one to handle all conditions.
