    Setting up RXT for closed course

    Seems all the info I found on dropped sponsons and setting up a ski for cornering is on the RXP so I wanted to start a thread asking some questions for us with RXT's.

    • What is the best setup for closed course or twisty trail riding on the RXT? There have been times when you turn the bars and it goes straight. I have found that adding VTS definately helps.
    • How do dropped sponsons work on an RXT?
    • Are stock sponsons better than Riva?
    • How will this setup affect drag runs and offshore riding? Will you have to switch between the two depending on the riding style you will do that day?
    • Is there a good all around setup for offshore, drag, and closed course riding?

    On my setup RXT 07 i ve got water hydraulic trim for better sharp cornering it works very fast , i keeped the oem sponsons for my riding style and for offshore riding and speed, relocated the water tank to under box gloves, put ruber high density 2 cms higher under the mats. the feeling on the ski isnīt so hard good for long travels and the last setup i put the riding plate, pump suport, intake grate and shaft from RXTX , definetly the the best improvment we can make on ours RXTīs..., my ski on offshore riding is day from nigth.

    Ok sounds like a great setup for offshore racing that would help keep the bow down alot more. Can you PM me with details on how to make the setup?

    Looks good. I thought about the hydraulic trim tabs, but added VTS for about $200, a fraction of the cost. VTS was one of the best mods I did and it definitely helped. It allowed me to adjust the ski for proper handling needs. I thought to put the stock sponsons back on it and adjust the VTS rod to point the nozzle down more when trimmed all the way down for better cornering or purchase the auto drop nozzle which will drop it even more when trimmed all the way down and turning. (Does that even make sense?) I am just looking to tweak what I have for best of both worlds.

    If you already got the VTS then just purchase the auto drop nozzle it helps alot I use to use it on my closed course RXP an it turned on the dime with it. you can also get trim tabs too if you want to get a better cornering bike an they will help in offshore as well.

    this system replaces the VTS system, and is actuated by the handlebar lever.this is suposed to be for hard turns, ,if you have the VTS system on your ski you canīt use this one. Hugo

    So how does it actually work i get the point about the handle bars but is it water pressured?

    yes is water pressure from the pump.
    the water line goes to the divider seen on the picture,than has two way outs, one for keep the hydraulic pump on normal position

    the other way out is for down the nozzle when actuated by the lever

    itīs very easy the the instalation
    this original hidraulic system is made to work w/ air, but i put w/ water

    The Manufactor is CAMOZZI
    PM you later
