Got it today! 88mph
I have been working on my speed all summer. My goal was 77mph and spend less than 1K. I did 77.1mph for 850.00 today. The last thing I did was have Duke repitch a SRX-CD15/20 prop for me. Its going to need a little more tweaking, but this was the results of the first try. I need to get the rpms down some more, so maybe a little more speed is left in it. Conditions were awesome today. I am running in a closed lake behind my house, no current. My last run when finished, the low fuel came on. Thanks, Duke for putting me over the top, I am stoked for sure.

Awesome #'s. With the right mods and some tinkering these things can run fast for cheap. What other ski can get you to 77 mph for $850?

I couldn't have done it without GH. I kinda of applied what I learned from the STX-15F that I had and put it on the RXP-X. I gained 8mph on the 15F and the same with the RXP-X. I am thinking the next mphs will be expensive. IE: SC upgrade, ECU, and more, etc, etc.

I have a theory that the X makes the same power as a Riva Stage 3. You're not far from proving my theory right. I little intake grate work might get you there.

I am hearing the Riva and Worx intake grates are faster. I still have a few more things to do, so as it gets cooler, I may make it to 78mph with the R & D. To Do List: Repitch prop, rear exhaust, bilge blower mod, SS wear ring, relocate battery to where the resonator is now.
