    RE Blockoffs

    Maybe I'm repeating old news, but I haven't seen anybody comment on this. The APBA updated their rules in April:

    "Race Engineering OPAS Block-offs for Seadoo watercraft has been approved for APBA racing in all classes"

    That's good news for the RXT (and RXP, but they could use the Riva block-offs) racers out there!

    Thats awesome! If i ever want to race my RXP I dont have to take off my OPAS!

    I am sure Jerry is going to get a huge boost in sales orders for these as now all the racers will be moving to using them instead of the Riva ones.

    Just curious, but how much better is the performance of the ski with the RE BOs versus the riva BOs? $200.00 more can buy some more performance parts. Local performance shop says they are just a looksy mod over the riva BO's. Any comments?

    From the readings the block off on RXP tend to cause porposing.

    Lafjax went from RE to block offs on his RXT and didn't know any difference.

    I think the longer RXT hull less suseptible to porpoising in the first place.

    Do the RE's come with block off plates for the opas holes on the inside of the pump tunnel like the Riva's do?
