My RXP Mod & Speed History
I was showing Frank this spreadsheet that I keep to remind myself of what mods I've added and what I got from them, as well as what problems I had and overcame along the way. He thought that other folks would find it useful, so here it be.
Bold fields indicate the change from previous numbers. Can be mods, air temp, altitude, etc.
Keep in mind when looking at the speeds that I am roughly twice the weight of the normal rider, so my speeds are generally 1.5 MPH slower than the next guy.

wow you can really see how much the air/water temps play on your speeds.
Can't wait to see everyones results at mudbug.

Awsome spreadsheet Jarrett. I wish i had started something like that long ago.

I always wondered how you knew your exact performance levels from past rides that I barely even remember making

Jarrett we are what you call the BIG BOY club.
I am not your average size guy either. So my speeds show it....
LMAO.... BIG ole tug boats...
Great way to track everything might I add.

That's pretty impressive. I do it old school method and write down all the info in a old surveying field book I keep with me...
Not near as easy to sort through as that list though...

cool i like the way you register thing.
like you know, im very new to all this... my question is:
going trought all this probably cost you a *lot* of money... is it really worth it putting that much money in the sea-doo when you only gain 6mph at the end? i just dont get it?

Just wait until that first person inches past you on the water...Then there will be NO amount of money that's too much to go faster...
Plus it seems the Rotax route costs a little more up front than the Riva route at this point but the Rotax is capable of delivering ultimately higher top end speeds (of course all that may change when the Riva Stage III comes out)...
If you want to be just a little faster than average the Riva Stage I is actually a incredible value but after that it skyrockets...
Of course Riva uses that Stage I kit just to get you on the "hook" because they know once you've had a taste you're going to want the whole pie...
