Ride Plate Results
I know this speed is nothing to get excited about, but look at the temps and mods:
83 degree water
98 degree air
4" air intake
Stock SC (only showed 6.5 pound boost)
Modified ride plate
71.3 mph @ 7800 rpm... down 300 rpm from ideal.
I'm going to run it tomorrow morning in 65-68 degree air and see what happens. Then I'll pitch accordingly... should be able to extract 73+ with stock SC.

The Jim's plate is awsome indeed. I know i gained every bit of 1.5 mph since being able to pull off better than last years cool temp speeds while in this 85-90 degree heat. You can feel the ski on the plate too. Def more loose on top. The other day i was doing a big 100 yard cicle turning around on glass and as i turned i accelerated and i noticed almost like a switch the ski felt like it came onto plane a second time going from 30 to about 45 mph. the steering suddenly lost some sensitivity and i felt higher on the water. This isn't a bad thing since i have plenty of steering and nothing is dangerous it's just funny how you can feel the ski actually ride higher.

What I am doing to mine is a bit more aggressive and not intended for everyone. I actually have to "fill" holes that are created and spend time working "around" the allen head drain plug... but, I have seen a modest 2+ mph gain!
