    Lugs,

    I raced Pro 785s for years and still have two. I also raced XPs, XPLs and, for one season, a RXX. I bought it new (stupid).

    Originally, they had plenty of kinks that needed to be worked out. My first time out, the drive shaft coupler failed and I almost sunk getting back to the ramp. Second time out, the drive shaft broke. I found out these were common problems with the RXX. All that got fixed and I started racing it in the stock class. It is very fast. I took the hole shot every race, but the hull just doesn't handle well on a closed course track. Most races, I came in second to a guy on an XPL, due to the fact that the XPL handles so well.

    In one race, I almost got taken out due to the ill handling. I found out that there was another kink with the RXX after talking to another racer out west. There was a giant 'soft spot' in the left front area of the hull. I could almost poke my finger through it. Apparently, when they shave the hulls to be lighter for racing, they went too far. Anyway, I was able to get Sea-Doo to get me a stock RX hull and the engine pipes, etc were swapped over from the RXX.

    So, not a good racer, but would be very cool for rec. riding. I regret selling mine. The other thing to be aware of is that Sea-Doo recommends a new top end every 25 hours. You seem to be mechanically inclined, so this shouldn't be a problem for you.

    There were some problems with hull delaminations but Seadoo replaced them free. As far as I know it was still an RXX hull just built right.

    what was the top speed on these when they were new.......how do they compaire to an rxp?????

  10. #10
    Top speed was around 68. They came with two sets of rings for the exit nozzle, so it depended up which ones you have installed. The RXPs weren't around when I have my RXX, but I'm sure they are quite comparable. The acceleration on the RXX was awesome too.

    It is funny. Back when the RXX came out, you had to be a racer holding an ISJBA membership card to buy one. Now they have the RXP-X rocket and any ole Joe can buy one. I guess they are no longer concerned about liability.
