    OPAS handling

    I am looking at an 05 RXT (for only $5475 bty [gauge cluster is cracked and will need to be fixed for $750] but still a good deal I think)

    My question is stability wise are the RXTs better than GTIs?

    and

    I have never ridden the RXT but in my experiences with the GTI I feel as though when I lose contact with the water then re-enter, i feel as though I am getting tossed around to the point where I might fly off. In researching threads I am attributing that the the OPAS. I am I right in my attribution?

    With the OPAS removed will I find it more consitent and less like I am going to get thrown?

    Thanks for the information.

    yes OPAS is giving you that bad hooking when your pump is temporarily unloaded, like when you come out of the water.
    yes rxt is more stable and alot more powerful than the gti

    thanks for the response, do you think the price is good, knowing that the gauge cluster is cracked and it will cost $723 at the dealer to fix?

    It should not cost that much if you find a used cluster here in the classifieds, and swap it yourself. It should be pretty easy.

    FYI... $350 from Shibby (should be a top notch part). Talk to him...He should be able to tell you how to change that out.
