    Racing in Choppy water on CC or SC

    I had practice all weekend for Region 5 SuperCross! Yesterday I ran with some of the Pro's and did fine until one of the guys used a ski boat to make these huge choppy waves to make it harder for us! I have no problems in the turns or on the straightway's but trying to go thru a 3-6 ft chop I really have to slow down! It seems like none of the aftermarket parts have helped with riding in Choppy water! My boat is still stock, so I am trying to find out if anyone who runs supercourse or CC and has a better method of riding though the chop let me know!

    Extend your rideplate out 1"
    It will make a huge difference in the chop.

    I found that on the RXP the extended plate keeps the ski planted better and hookup is much improved.
