    RXX HULL QUESTIONS
    1. is this a good hull in rough water/wave jumping?
    Decent.. They are heavy. Do well in rough water, tough to jump well
    2. what are known problems with this hull?
    Delamination of the hull was a problem..
    951 QUESTIONS
    3. what is the life span on one of these motors.... it will be in salt water but flushed with fresh
    951's can last 100's of hours if maintained correctly. Wave jumping will increase the possibility of salt water getting in the motor.. It's up to you on how long it lasts.
    4. what kind of mantience is required?
    Basic, pump service, fogging it, greasing the zerks and keeping water out.
    5. i want a regular 951 not the RXX 951 where can i get one?
    Classifieds section here on this board
    OTHER QUESTIONS
    6. what kind of speeds will i be looking at whith a stjck 951?
    High 50's Low 60's
    7. what stock 951lines up best in a RXX hull?
    Lines up? That would be the RX.. Which is what you will be building. The RXX was just an RX with twin pipes, different cooling, re-mapped MPEM, skat-pump and all the handling and steering mods already included (turn-key race ski)
    8. what premix is best and what ratio?
    40:1 (3.2oz oil / 1 gal gas). I prefer amsoil interceptor
    9. am i wasting my time/money on this build will i be able to run it hard and enjoy it or will it be nightmare?
    Depends on what is included in the hull deal.
    if a question does not make sense tell witch one and i will change it

    i will keep adding questions so stay tuned and thanks for the help

    Actually, the RXX requires a lot more maintenance than stock 951s. Sea-Doo recommended top end rebuilds every 20-25 hours. Top speed is close to 68, depending on the nozzle ring installed. The delamination was big issue. Other than that, a fun rec. ski. It just didn't handle well enough for racing.
