    RXT or RXT-X

    Okay so in Feb or March I'm looking at getting a 2008 Ski. Assuming RXT is slightly less (500-750) which should I get?

    Stock RXT-X
    RXT with RIVA Stage I

    How would they compare in speed?

    Thanks in Advance

    yer go with the X. By time you have spent the money to make the rxt a stage 1, you would probably spent the same amount of $$ and still have a slower ski..

    Go with the X hands down. just the trim alone will cost you the difference to install new.
    The VTS is a big plus to the performance of RXT ski!!!]

    Then you get:
    X steering with finger throtle
    better stock prop on X
    9.5 psi sc compared to 7
    larger injectors and different ecu mapping
    external intercooler

    It will cost you quite a bit just to upgrade to the above mods on RXT.

    He is meaing that he would go with a new RXP over a RXP-X.

    NOt the safest ski for the everday big speed modder.
    Uncle Buck will become your friend if you want to mod the ski out.

    The RXT platform does not have any bucking issues that we know of yet.

    You may be ejected violently if going above 75mph or so on a RXP-X
