    RXP-X Prop, and intake grate installed

    Installed the Solas 15/22 R impeller and Riva intake grate on Anthony's ski, he is a fourm member( dont know his screen name), and customer. The ski had 0 hours on the clock, it ran 66.7 mph stock and with the grate and impeller it ran 72.4mph! great speed gains from just a prop and grate on a stock ski with just 0 hours!!!, I wish I took some pics, I also work on his 07 RPX that had lots of mods and it ran 77.6 mph to start and ended up running 80.8 with a prop change and a rebuilt supercharger. I wish I took some pics, but I was busy today and didnt have a chanch. Thanks alot Anthony for coming down and hope everything works out!!

    Were those gains from 15/22 stock pitch? Also what nozzle were you running with what rpms thanks

    It was stock from Riva, I know they repitch thier props, but it was strait out of the box!! I have had several of these props and am glad I finally got the chance to install one, I can wait till the ski is broken in!!

    Thats where i am at with the same impeller and grate, i guess my free flow and 4"rear give me .1 mphs.. lol

    acceleration is pretty nice with this set up!!

    If you put the reduction nozzle 82m ring you will hit 76 mph

    a few have mentioned you lose quite o bit of acceleration with the 82, gonna run an 83 and see how that works out

    yes you do lose some acceleration but wont you rather have the top end? I would. I raced a stock rxpx and he blew me out by one ski on the hole shot. But as soon as i hit the water i was gone.

    Unfortunately, and i really mean that, I am the fastest in my area..


    If someone comes along with a bit more speed, I might, but for now, I'll take the force.
