    RXT-X stock mods to open mods?

    2008 RXT-X Originally bought for endurance/supercourse racing and was going to keep it stock, but the racing has changed. Trying to keep it for another year or two. Not much of a stock class anymore so last season we had to race it in open. So this year will probably be doing the same CC Open and Sprint Open . Looking for a few mods to give it a little more bang, so maybe to hang with some of the heavier moded open skis.
    Now: Les Cooke 8600 w/ light wt. retainers, TB Mod, 4” Air, 15/22 & 14/19 Solas, Riva open loop, riva ride plate, R&D intake, riva free flow, riva sponsons,
    Next : Looking for the next few mod’s to give it the most bang for the buck.
    Thanks

    Well maybe I need to concentrate on the bottom end. If you get this big ski out front makes it hard for those guys to get around. I'm sure I want some top end also and of course the T-X isn't the easiest ski to turn in the cc racing. Numbers on GPS last year weren't so bad 75-77mph @ 8300-8500.

    I hear you Mike, well dollars are always kind of tight. Like to make a few changes to help the bottom end out for sure. Also always looking to keep the ski reliable as I can. Just looking for couple ideas where to start, so I could do a few mods in steps.
