    09 rxt upgrades? Which impeller to use

    I have a 09 rxt and looking for some input on which pitch and brand of impeller to go with. Also and upgrades I should do. Would like to get a little more top end out of it.

    i got 2 rxpx ... its really just pitch. some brands just shinier than others
    one running 15/21.... bounces out of water on launch, good mid acceleration
    one running 12/22.... softer launch, overall decent acceleration throughout

    gps shows 65mph on both
    see my other post yesterday for a budget 4" intake

    For an RXT 215 with an air intake (stage 1 mods) you will want the below 14/19 impeller. Don't forget to use the discount code: greenhulk when completing the checkout process in the forums store. It will save you some $$$

    Also, replace the wear ring with a new impeller. Your options are the stock plastic wear ring, but I recommend the stainless steel wear ring. More info on stainless steel wear rings by clicking here

    The parts to rebuild your pump can be found by clicking here

    Hope that helps!

    i just realized ...you have a non supercharged ski. my previous info was based on x models. sorry. but as far as wear rings, plastic ones will wear to fit if your impeller is tight or flexes upon acceleration. SS ones stand up to sand, debris and rocks going through pump. just verify your clearance is sufficient when you assemble it all as there is no give if it rubs.

    The RXT 215 is supercharged. If your X machines are only running 65 gps with mods you should go back to stock. They run 67+ out of the box. RR
