    Question about Stage 3

    Going to stage 3 RXT IS 260 have everything besides the x Charger is this needed if im already capable of producing 8650 rpm with out it?

    I ask because if that is the case i may either ask riva to take the x charger out of my tune and keep rpm to 8650 or just wait because i am out of spending money for this thing until next year. I would like to get all this stuff in and get going with it but dont want to if x charger is needed

    Advice?

    I know i can get 8600 because i am at stage 2 and with 14/19 solas i was getting 8620 before rev limiter kicked in and since then i have put a solas 15/20 in to not fuck engine and running at a perfect 8250rpm

    That's like those people that buy a BMW 328 and put M badges on it.

    If you want to go faster you need that wheel.

    If you got a 260.....you already have an x wheel.

    I'm assuming he means the 137+4 wheel which is in riva "stage 3".

    I'm asking why would I need it if I'm already hitting 8650rpm with out it and without all the other mods they want to add. I mean if I'm hitting the rpm why do I need their upgraded sc wheel

    But if it is needed I will have to wait or could I add it later down road or wait until I can buy the stuff for stage 4 and just purchase Rivas xxx charger

    RPM does not equal speed, it's RPM at a given pitch.

    With the larger wheel you'll be able to spin a higher pitch impeller faster so you'll go faster.

    True but Riva recommends a 1419 for stage 3 spinning at 8600 RPM and I was already hitting that without having all the other mods I only ask because at some point I will be going to stage 4 and would just buy the whole assembled XXX 2 charger

    yes you may do that .my suggestion is CRT in miami is finally doing costume REFLASH on your 260 and 300 just like VIPEC no need of VIPEC any more you dont need tu buy that many stuff any more , you dont even need a fuel regulator .. only need Injectors , air intake , head bolt , flywheel bolt , and a prop is all you need .. even if you go e85 you only need a fuel pump hi will tune that in you ski ..
