    RXP Speed Found

    Top speed on my stage 2 05 RXP with the stock ecu has been 77.3 @ 8100 rpms. This year I replaced the stock battery with an Everstart 16CL-B from Walmart which is 6.5 lbs lighter than the stock battery and I sanded my rideplate smooth. My new top speed is now 78.2 @ 8100 rpms. The new battery has 10 less cranking amps and starts every time. I’m also using an Attwood 3 in. blower that is on all the time. I’m not really sure if one or both helped with the speed increase.

    I am thinking that your speed came from sanding the plate.
