    Next Steps???

    Looking for opinions on next steps, current setup is a 2006 RXP with a 15/20r, 4Ē front intake, XS IC with strainer, catch can, green wheel, RE nopas and Riva through hull exhaust. Best so far is 73.8 at 8100. It pulls so hard from 50-65 itís a struggle for an old guy like me to hang on.

    The hull is all stock except for the REs and I really like the way it handles without the fins, feels 100 lbs lighter. Reading the posts about ride plates Iím thinking I might try that and maybe a grate next.

    Thanks in advance.

    Upgrade the supercharger (and fuel supply )
    The rideplate is a good bang for the buck. The only unattractive part is installation and removal of the plate.

    That's just the front housing and impeller. A re-build kit is $376, then you need the rear housing which is worth about $110. Then labor. You're looking at an absolute minimum of $1100 for a new one.

    If you want even better handling than now, go for Jerry's skegs
    they make your ski handle like its on rails

    I'd like to keep the bosot about where it is, I'm in the power band and everythign sounds happy. I'm thinking Jims ride plate with the skegs tig'd to the plate. I ride on a pretty calm lake most of the time. What about a grate, should I get rid of the stock grate and go for something more agressive? I'd like to get to a reliable predictable 75 in just about any conditions I'm going to encounter on my lake.

    You ought to try it when your trailer bunks are narrower than the rideplate
