    tunnel on rxpx

    I was talking to a friend of mine today who owns a jet ski shop he said one of his customers with a rxpx called him and told him the pump tunnel completely blew up. It looks like the over stuffing issue might be putting way to much pressure on the tunnel.

    wow.....hope the rider is ok and the ski didnt sink.....the physics of that is incredible....must of been one fast P-X.....curious what mods it had, how fast it was going, and in what conditions to open the 'window' that much and cause that much pressure to blow out the pump tunnel instead of just bucking the ski!?!?

    any chance they could get pics of that?

    so Jawz.....u've overstuffed a couple of times from ur posts...if u have cracks..im thinking when the ski hits the overstuff critical volume of water, there must be some type of pressure spike/pulse in the pump tunnel caused by the 'dynamic pressure' of the ski...........
    Are the cracks located closer to the intake grate or back in the tunnel by the pump?
