Ran an RXT-X today
Water was soo smooth and got to do a few runs with my buddies 10hour RXT-X. My RXP-X has 13 hours on the clock. Both skis have Riva intakes.
Out the hole he squeezed first, we hole shot together, then at around 40 I started pulling away and more as we topped out. He was GPsing 67 @ 7800RPM I was at 70 @ 8040RPM. These results were in salt water and water temps around 86 degrees.
Check out the sound of my rocket in this video;

Might have something to do with the dense salt water down here?? All of my props had 2mm out to pull Riva's posted RPMs. I hope you arent using your speedo for RPM vs Speed ?

U mean you didnt hear the afterburner kick in? No seriously you can here the S/C wine at the start. I wish you-tube showed the orginal clear video so you guys could see how quickly the RPMs and Speed come up.
