    Riva ride plate mod, having probs

    Ok si I installed the plate an like it lots ran it. I bounces to much. I shimmed it down 1/4 inch. Hope this helps.
    I have the cheap block offs on the rxp now. REs should be here soon. How much should this help. Also is the riva plate that bad as far as bouncing. I'm going to be shooting for 80+ mph was told these help a lot. Were does each part kick in an end as far as hull mods what do they do an what's best at top speed runs?

    1/4 inch shim? Thats way too much. While that may stop the bounce it will surely kill any possible spped gains you may have gotten from the plate. Pull the spacers back out until you get the RE's installed and try it again. The RE's will most likely fix all your issues and its a waste of time to test anything until they are installed.

    +1. RE's make the difference.
