What do I need to start racing
Hey guys, I was maybe thinking about racing this year in the midwest watercross series. I already have a tow strap and helmet. Can I use a 2 place trailer to launch or do I need a beach dolly. I have an 04 rxp and cant do any mods to it according to my parents soo... obviously racing beginer stock class. Are the riders good in this class or will I do pretty good. Is my ski gunna get beat up, becasue she is my baby and cared for really well. Any tips for me. Anything else that I am overlooking. Thanks guys.

You don't need a beach dolly. If you can get your boat in the water...then that is all you need. Get a beach stand so you can park it, without having to remove it. When you race you run the risk of taking on damage. RXP's do well in stock classes.

in any class you find the risk of damage! minor scrapes to full blown re build of your hull. you will do well depending on your ability to ride around the course. if you can try to get incontact with some racers around your area and practice with them, paractice being behind to get use to the chop and goign around the bueys. and yes RXPs do well in stock... if you can drop the sponson on your RXP and you will get a much beter feel on the turning. Only if you can. good luck.

$$$$$$$ Lot's of it Then, when your out of $$$$$$, You ask yourself, what would I have done, if I have a second chance They won't even take the chinese/taiwan/mexico gold plated of the throphys in the local pawnshop and the glass bowl like trophys.....they were a hit at $2.95 at the swap meet. they were buying it and using it for a salad bowl.
