Congrats on the order! Very similar exterior color scheme to my XT22 and I love it!

I prefer the rubber tread on the trailer. Doesn't get slippery even when wet and never hot from sitting in the sun. SS may look better but it seems like rubber is more functional. Time will tell if it lasts as long though.

X24 Order

Does anyone know if the 7.4 will offer more top end speed than the 6.2? I know it sounds crazy but top end speed is an important factor for me... If I was told that a 7.4 would offer a better performance in this category Iíd consider changing my order from a 6.2 to a 7.4... Iím happy with my top end in my current 7.4 am I going to lose performance in that category by going with a 6.2?

Jkc, I have been looking into this topic as well. Obviously there is nothing on the x24 yet but it sounds like the 7.4 increased top end in the x23 and the x30 by ~8 mph. I donít max out my boat but I do spend time traveling distances, so lower rpm at 30 mph would be nice.

What was the top end of your x46 with the 7.4? It would probably be close to the same as the x24 - maybe a bit higher for the 46.

I demoed the x24 and it was loaded with 12 adults. The 6.2 did very well, but we didnít go faster than surf speeds. My x23 is at 4000 rpm at 30 mph and I propped up.

Iím at 3500 rpm at 33 MPH in my 46 with the 7.4 I like to cruise in the 32-34 MPH range. Like you, I have ground to cover and prefer to cover it at a faster speed.

32-34 mph in my boat is probably 4250-4500 rpm.

I have also ordered a 24. test drove the 6.2 at lake tahoe at 6000+ feet and it was great. Having said that i went with the 7.4, which is what i have in my x46.

Out of curiosity, if the 6.2 did so well, why the 7.4? Did you wakeboard the x24 in Tahoe? If so, how did it do?

That's what I did in my star, but even with a prop change, it guzzles fuel. My friends G uses half the gas or less. A MC engineer told him the only people that need the 7.4 are the pros that put in 7000lbs of additional. Food for thought....

I really did it more for top end speed. Cruising at 33-34 mph at 4500 plus rpm for a long distance with a 6.2 seems crazy. Iím only at 3500 rpm at that speed with my current X46 with a 7.4. Mine does guzzle gas but Iíve never had the 6.2 so I wouldnít know the difference. It seems like the 6.2 would drink more gas knowing that itís a 1000 more rpm at the same speed. Plus at the end of the day I do love the rumble of the 7.4. Now there is no room for regret.
