    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
    XS IC
    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.

    Josh, you couldn't have described it more accurately! The ski just lifts and goes.

    You are correct, I am doing my own. The concept is the same as that provided by the two forum members who are producing modified ride plates that offer fantastic results.

    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!

    Update:

    78 degree water
    70 degree air (should have run it an hour earlier)
    Stock SC (did show 7 pounds this morning due to air and rpm)

    73.0 mph @7950 rpm... still low by 150 rpm.

    I love the ride plate mod!!!

    Jeff and Josh,

    I agree 100% with you guys. When I ride my ski in glass water it feels like you rading way higher then normal and I pick up 1.5 in speed.
