    Whats the best ride plate/grate combo for chop

    Just wondering what plate,grate combo for a 07,RXP is the best for choppy conditions. I'm running a turbo and have decent power just it's hard to put it down when u get a little rough stuff. ATM I'm running a 3 blade skat prop with stock pump but am switching to a 162mm skat pump.

    R & D intake grate has been proven in choppy conditions......

    The RXP doesnt handle well at all it's going to need more than just a grate. The extra
    Power makes it even worse.

    Riva sponsons in the "all the way down" setting made a huge difference in tracking & staying planted in the ocean, it was very predictable compared to the stock sponson ride. I ran the R&D intake, stock ride plate & Riva pro block offs too.
    Some are saying the riva ride plate is good for tracking & rough water handling too.

    Worx grate on a Rxp I personaly found the best in chop with a bit extra hp. Ride plate I can't see helping to much with sticking down until u turn.
    Rxp's are like pogo sticks in the heavy chop . I stuck better with a custom set of opas and a extension to the oem ride plate. No good if your after top speeds on a glass lake though.

    How does the riva plate hook up compared to the stock plate in the rough stuff.

    I use the Riva plate with R&D intake grate!The handling and stability on chop is much much better than stock!

    The Riva plate hooks up way better. At least on an X boat I can say for sure.
