    How Fast?

    hey guys, well me and my dad were debating on which rxp to get. 08 red 215, or 155. well when we went to the dealer, he said that the 155 is plenty and i would get hurt on the 215. me or my dad did not believe it and so we just bought the only one they had, the 155 . how fast will the rxp 155 do? i am an experienced rider so dont worry about that. thanks alot guys.

    my 130 is plenty fast for what I do, at times I wish to have more hole power for jumming wakes, swells, chop, but for the extra 3-4000 dollars I believe I made the right choice for my first ski. It will go 55 mph with no modifications, its a GTI SE and internal cooled 4 stroke which is the feature I like the most...bought them new last year (2) for $8000 each with double trailer in Dallas.

    I'm an experienced rider too, and having rode the RXP-X, I can say it's almost too much for me stock. I'm not sure how the 215hp stacks up, but I bet it can't be much different.

    Really??? I mean... it's fast and all, but... really??? As soon as I rode mine, I decided to make it a mission to get to 10 hours so that I could "feel the power". The up in power came at the 8 hour mark, and was noticable. It made me think... "OK, I need to make this faster" (and I don't mean just top speed).

    Don't get me wrong, it is the most extreme stock PWC I've ridden... but it's really never enough is it? I like accelleration. If I had the option, I would get something that was so fast out of the hole OR at a 30mph punch that I could hardly hold on. To me... that's fast. Top speed is good and all, but it get's boring (and dangerous over 85mph) after 10 minutes. Just my opinion.
