    Alright.. RXP-X modders whose got the holes drilled and with what grate

    I see the forum getting a bit busier... a good time to re-visit the over stuff issues and the latest things the lucky guys who get to ride all year long have discovered, confirmed, or feel comfortable with.

    Also for the new people to the board, having another thread about this will be good for them also.

    I think from all the thread reading over the winter that with the WORX grate it seems people are not drilling the holes up to the talked about safe speeds of 76-78.

    With R/D grate it seems I see people drilling the holes and feeling a bit better about top speeds of 77-80. Not sure why the holes seem to be more on the R/D grate...

    I had the holes drilled with the stock mod grate- but filled them with plumber putty when I put the WORX grate. I don't plan on reaching over 75MPH....but what about 76-78 with a WORX grate? HOLES or no HOLES?

    I see some people in the high 70's low 80's with no holes regardless of grates.

    Kind of just want a long discussion so people can see what the overall consensus is.



    Also.. does 3 vs. 4 blade impeller change the speed thresh holds or the need for holes or no holes?

    I run the R&D with holes, 15/22 and stock X nozzle. No overstuff issues what so ever and have gone 80.

    Have you tried w/out holes and noticed more cavitation with the holes?

    What's your normal top speed...

    80 with only a grate and prop? Is that on the speedo or GPS?

    Ignore this thread.... sorry to waste the space here.

    I figured I'd do some searching just to re-read again what I've already read.

    My how quick I forget....

    Still good for 'x' owners who aren't familiar with the over stuff problem are these threads-
