T-X Speed comments - Help
Ok, need some comments / help here from you pro's out there.
RXT-X - currently 6.5hrs as of yesterday afternoon
Stock prior to installing the R&D grate and power filter - 68.3 mph with garmin gps 76 Csx
Now with the R&D grate and power filter installed, I am getting a maximum gps speed of 69.3 mph @ 8040-60 rpm's. Water was pretty calm - no chop.
Holeshot performance is still just like original...maybe a tad better. With trim all the way up, the machine will get airborne on full throttle takeoff.
Trim all the way down, boat sticks and goes like hell.
Question: Should I be getting more speed than 69.3 mph with these add on's or is that about right?
Riding conditions yesterday were 90-91 degrees...didn't really look into the relative humidity...
I still have yet to fill rideholes and around the underside of the grate....will this make a big difference? Other mods are listed below...

What were the weather conditions when you got your previous topspeed #'s.
Hot humid air will knock off 1-2 mph

I think your right on par w/ less than 7 hrs and summer heat, IMO. You should see slightly better performance around 10 hrs.

Now they are 8040-60 after the mods.
My elevation is around 400ish. I will get exact data next time I go out, but I want to say the Cumberland River here was not quite 400 feet above sea level.
I plan on continuing to mod the machine. I'd like to see 75 or better, but I just cannot see breaking the bank for another 5-6 mph...unless I hit a big lick somewhere along the way.

Sorry man, couldn't resist---seriously, you need to talk to Jawz about a prop tweak, you'll be very pleased from what I hear.
