Pete, back in 2004 i welded a 2" extension on my ride plate. It improved hook up tremendously but also scrubbed 2+ mph. I ended up cutting the extension down to 1" and the speed loss was much less. Around 1 mph and i still had improved hookup.

yes i remember for this. Thanks
Do You have a picture that i can see how it looks like from under the ski? and what would you say how would this extention work with pump extention?

I don't have a pic from under the plate but it looked just like the existing ride plate.... just extended 2"
I wouldn't waste my time with an extension if you are going with a pump extension kit. The extension kit is going to improve your hook up in a big way. No need to extend the ride plate which will slow you down.

Here are some picture of the rideplate extension Mitch did on my 04 RXP a few years back before I switched to the X

So.....since 85% of my riding is in rough water I need to set up my ski for the best possible way (if want to compite next year)
I was thinking of switching back to stock sponsons, add MiniRude SC/50' injectors, live Riva plate and go with pump extention.
What do you think how would the ski handle?

Personally for rough water I love my RR pump, but I've never tried the pump extension. I know Mitch had a pump extension on his RXP and he seemed to like it a lot. Since the pump extension is a lot cheaper than the RR pump I'd probably give that a try.

Either the riva plate or different sponsons has changed your ski as the setup I just listed above is awesome in the rough.
