    Boat Test Results

    I was foolin around on boattest.com today, and I have find that their information seems to be a little unreliable? I mean for some skis it seems that they have the speeds dead on, but for other it just seems like their GPS is broken. For example, yamaha vx 110 with a top speed of 53.7. That seems pretty accurate considering when mine was stock I was 53.9 avg and on ideal conditions peaking low 54s. I went to go look at the 2008 RXT, and the top speed was 62.5. Is this a joke? I know for sure RXTs on avg have a top speed of close to 66 (give or take). Do you think it's because they did not break them in or who knows. Their RXPs had a top speed of 65.5, which is slower than most I've seen. Any input would be great

    I don't know about the 215 hp rxt, I have rxt-x, but their rpms seem low at 7800 with a speed of 62.5. I don't think thats WOT. My t-x WOT is on avg 8040 rpms.

    I know, but I don't understand why the speeds are so low. They should be turning at least 8000 RPMs and reaching speeds of at leasttt 65.

    All I can say is that the Yami dealers love this site. . . they will print-out the SHO vs. XXX article and hold it like gold.

    The Rxp was full of gas, trim all the way down, 2 FAT riders and pulling a tube

    They just released "their" top speed for the RXTX. A whopping 65.4. They must of had the whole zoo out behind it.

    Yeah, I remember a couple months back they did the SHO, Ultra, and Rxt shootout and the SHO one in every single aspect. They have the FX HO at 60 mph and RXT at 62.5, so I guess RXTs are only 2.5 mph faster than HOs =P
