    I like mine, but I'd add the RE block-off's along with them. Keep them in the max down position.

    They look alot better tham the stockers too. If you want, I will upload a couple picts.

    By the way, I am at 72+ @ 8000 rpm w/ the current mods.

    Peter, you won't gain any speed from the sponsons. If you ride in rough water you will appreciate having them. For flat water I'm happy with the stock sponsons.

    Ditto Jerry on that one Peter. Water that's flat & glassy, it makes NO difference whether you run stocker's or aftermarket.

    However, when I'm riding KY lake where it get's crazy in the channel with 2' + chop, the RE's and Sponsons make a better ride.

    You just need to decide whether you want to spend the 300 bucks for them. There's no performance gain, mostly cosmetic, but not hard to install yourself.

    i hade one riva spon on my rxp but i think the ride was better with stock.
    But with the rxt-t ?!...... where i ride its ALWAYS chopy and the boat traffis is creazy. If it will improve the strait line ride on chopy water i will buy it.
    About the RE's for sure i will get them, much better heandling with it.

    thanks for the replay

    My main question about spending the $$ is will it help with the Sudden Hook of the stock sponsons in fast CC turns?
