    Got a drag race this weekend

    A few Texas guys are getting together this weekend at Sam Rayburn. Forum member RIDEALLDAY will be there with his RXP-X. I beat RXP's and Ultra 250's out of the hole by about 3 lengths. The RXP-X does 0-60 in 4.8 seconds. We will see if the Sleeper can fend of the lastest & greatest 255hp $13,000 supercharged 4-stroke. This is going to be a close one.

    That will be an interesting test. The X leaves the RXP by 2-3 boats, so it should be really close.

    Yeah, thats what I heard also. Its going to be extremely close, hopefully I can pull it out. The RXP does 0-60 in the mid 5 second range, so I know I am in the 4 second range. I wish you were coming to Rayburn this weekend.

    Yeah, I wish I could make it too. But we start Supercourse racing next weekend, and I can't be out of town two weekends in a row.

    The Sleeper did very well against the RXP-X. We must have dragged raced 6 times and I believe I won 2 of them. It was very close, but in the end he beat me more times than I beat him. Most of the races were decided by a ski length, it was tight. The RXP-X could pull my GPR out of the hole by 3 lengths. Also the X was dead even if not slightly ahead of a Stage 3 RXP (stock ECU) up to about 50 mph. It was odd seeing a ski at my side the entire time in a drag race. It turned out like I expected, I knew it was going to be close and it was.

    The Sleeper was a little dissappointed, but he felt much better after he received the news that the RXP-X pulled the GPR out of the hole by 3 lengths.

    Nice Brandon. Your sleeper has a badass holeshot if it stayed with the X as well as it did. You have it set up well.

    Ever since I got the motor back from Group K in 2002 the goal was to be able to out run every new stock ski made. The mission was accomplished until 04 when the RXP came out. They could run be down on top end. Since then I have gained 4-5 mph, and can take the RXP & Ultra 250x. Now we are in 2008 and the RXP-X has a slight edge. Not too bad for a 11 yr old ski with 155 hp. It has been a fun 6 years on the 97 with the Group K motor. I have had the ski for 12 summers and it has been fun. I will never sell it!
