    How to keep the RXT planted at takeoff?

    Ok, so I added all this power to my RXT and is great, but at take off the ski launches like a rocket out of the water. What have you guys done to your RXT to keep the ski planted at take off?

    Its all on the launch...Half throttle to get it moving, about a 1-1.5 seconds into it, THEN HAMMER IT...

    If you hammer out of the hole, the prop will suck all the water out and cavitate...or it will launch itself and you suck air.....You need to get moving, get water flowing in, before you can really hammer it hard.....

    got it?

    Or stick a 15/20 4 blade with a 81mm ring for the same results!

    Is that what you had on it in the Ozarks? If so, I was able to holeshot the RTX-X and pull away...

    Hi bro ,whats up? there is a fix to solve this issue without spending to much $$$ in a VTS system, (we talked alot about this mod in the board a while back) get in touch with GEO RXT, i sent him the part to solve this issue in his ski, the part was made by a machine shop following my local watercraft tech instruccions and work like a charm, since GEO already installed a VTS system in his boat i assume that he took it out and may be somewere in his garage, i paid $50.00 bucks for this mod but i gave it to him for free.
