    RXP & Choppy water. .

    is it normal for the RXP to be somewhat "bouncy" or "porpoising" and lose RPMS in small to medium chop--river and ocean? When Im in smooth water, Im able to hold up and walk by a stock RXT X and FXSHO... yet add some boat and ocean chop and Im toast. I never see 8100 on the tach in that chop /

    What mods can help me stay glued to the water and keep the RPMS up? Or is the typical of the 2 seaters?
    Thanks!

    RE blockoffs, WORX or R&D intake grate, pump extension when it's released, 3 blade prop for starters.

    I think u mite find a stage 1 to out run the stock x... top speed especially..
    Also wouldnt an R&D or worx grate slow you down more through the chop?

    walk from a stock rxt-x??what mods you got?or is summit wrong with his t-x?no way should you beat him unless maybe top-end.
    i added a stage 1 riva kit to an rxp i had and stage 2 to another i had.stage 1 was definetly better in the chop.
    try a 3 blade prop also maybe pump wedge,better sponsons and work the trim like mad.also might want to invest in a pair of skegs off the online store.

    Thanks for the input.. Will do some Winter shopping...

    Yeah, the "walking By" the RXT X occurred on top end...he pulled me out of the hole and midrange, then i caught him and slowly edged. On the other side of me was a Speedster 430 HP Sea doo...and oh the other side of that was a FXSHO.. :-FUn when there's no river patrol!

    OTTO- There's a guy on here who rides locally with a slightly modded RXP X..we need to all meet up soon.
