    Top Secret Racing needs help

    Greetings from the Keys Guys its been a little hard to get info. posted on the tread because of no one to piggy back off. We have had major problems down here, theres alot of eel grass on the water and its playing havoc on some of the rides. Jose's RXT almost caught on fire, it overheated to the point that it went on limp mode.
    The rubber boot on the water box completely melted on the box, the exhaust pipe that connects from the waterbox to the outlet connection completely blistered, waterbox temp sensor melted. The bung connection to the exhaust manifold desintegrated with chunks of it loose inside the the waterbox. It was a disaster. I removed everything to find the cause, but we havent had good results finding the cause. The intercooler was removed and it seems to flow water fine with the water hose connected to it, no debri or weeds came out. The bailer line melted but there appears to be some foreing stuff in them, to me it looks like sea weed but how it got there is beyond me, I havent removed the pump to see if something could be clogging the screen on top of it or any other water flowing hole, but the ski is done for down here. We also had a slight crash onto a parked boat but I aint going much in details on this one as the rider is fine and only minor damage occured. Other than that we've had a great time. Yesterday we took all the guys Island hopping to the outer keys and mangroves and saw a nurse shark, large cudas and rays the water is very warm and beautiful and it has not rain one bit. we ride almost all day and party 'till we all drop. I'll see about posting some pics soon. If anyone has any ideas let us know. We already spoke with Todd and Robert and they both agree that the clogging has got to be in the pump. The Shark is doing fine, just recouping from last night as we all are. Im getting to old for this.
    Its only Wednesday and im already burned out. see you guys later. By the way this was an 08 RXT that almost caught on fire.

    You would need a J-Pipe to make Alex's setup work on your ski..

    Yea the alarm went off but he was in open ocean and didnt have a choice but to keep running it even after it went on limp mode (I guess). I'm wondering if anyone might stock the shit he needs down here (or close enough). We already called Riva. No luck.
