    Best RXT-X Grate Alternative

    OK... I will be working on a friends new RXT-X.

    I know this subject has been beat to death, but figured some quantitative results on the subject could help my friend make an informed decision... hence the poll

    If you have personal experience with one or more of the following intake grates, please take the time to reply and comment. If at all possible, please refrain from pure speculation... actual results would be appreciated

    Thanks,

    Jeff

    R&D grate, picked up 3.5mph with just a grate change. Works good in the chop, and in corners the ski stayed glued.

    Edit: I went back and looked at my notes. Only picked up 2.1mph with the grate....my bad.

    Nope....but I can only speak for what I have. I went out and ran my ski with stock grate, got GPS numbers, then swapped grates. I know nothing about the Riva grate.

    Maybe I need one of them $1000 props....ROFL.

    He was asking about the T boat. Don't need to drill the pump shoe.
