    RXX 4-Tech conversion

    I searched for this but didn't find anything. I have an opportunity to get my hands on an RXX w/o an engine but everything else. Has anyone tried to do this? Is the RXX a fast hull? Just wondering any info would be appreciated. Thanks

    Personally, I think this would be the sea-doo conversion to "try". But I think you can doo it cheaper with just an old RX hull. Maybe I'm wrong, but I thought they were the same hull. If so, you can find these pretty cheap as well.

    SOMEBODY needs to try one.

    I think the RXX is much like the RXP-X is to the RXP. It has the race handle bars and trim. I'm pretty sure it is the same hull. So no one has tried it yet, we might have to give it a go. Can anyone else comment.

    Ive wanted to do that ever since I knew you could pull a 215 engine out and stick it in something else. It would be like my dream ski, something that looks cool, goes fast, and is playful (as in, can do donuts and stuff)

    I take it you have had an RX then. Is it a good hull? I'm looking for a fast ski, this hull isn't a GTI or 3D or any other hull sea doo has or is still using? I know I should just search more on this subject but just looking for some opinions for now. Do you know if there is some good ride plate options?
    Thanks

    I thought the RXX hulls were a light layup hull for less weight and they had trouble with hulls flexing, cracking and delaminating, some in only a few hours. I remember some people saying they could flex the hulls in some spots by pushing with their hands. Maybe a standard RX hull might be a safer bet for a conversion ...

    I had a RX-DI and man did that ski turn on a dime and sub very easy .I'm not sure how it would do with the 4-tec being a heavy motor.
