RXP-X or FZR
I had a an 08 SHO and RXP-X which I just lost in a divorce but any freaking way Im not bitter. I cant decide on which ski to buy now. Another X or go with the FZR. The reason I a cant decide is because I really like the looks of the Z and Im sure the ride is better. The X is not the best riding ski if its choppy but its faster. The RXP is just stupid fast plain and simple. It was alot faster than the SHO. The FZR seems to be in the middle of the two, a bit faster than the SHO but still behind the Z. I see where R&D has a performer engine kit for about a grand for the Z. Queston 1, do you think this kit would bring the Z to the RXP's level? Qustion 2, opinions on R&D's power plenum air fliter verses Rivas power filter kit.

You really should ride both before making a decision. I've ridden both and they are completely different skis.

If you're not afraid to mod, the FZR is going to be kickin the X's ass in my opinion . Riva already has a kit with 300+hp and the new stuff is coming every day for this beast. Once you mod the FZR just a bit it's going to be faster, handle better and be much better in the chop than the X IMO.

we just had the variety club jet trek here. bout 700kms on skis fundraising for sick kids.
think they raised 150k
anyway, word is (with 60 or so witnesses) that the fzr was slightly faster in the drags, top end and the rough stuff, this could have inflated from one drag race won though lol
guinness records officials were not there though, sorry
