    Could the be the cause of some serious cavitation?

    My RXT has real bad cavitation as soon as you hit the throttle, about 2 seconds in it picks up nice and has no problems. The prop has many nicks in so i am wondering if this could be the cause, also for those of you who have seen hundreds of wear rings how does this one look?

    agreed!

    If your RXT is stock this is the impeller you need
