    Evolution Marine Ride Plate Question

    I have modified my Evolution Marine ride plate to look somewhat like the Hot seat or Watcon plates,
    Everyone is saying that without the Evolution Marine Intake grate that this thing will throw me off quick?
    Has anyone rode with a Evolution ride plate?
    The only difference that I can see is that the bottom channel is the depth all the same, where as the Watcon or Hot Seat plate the channel slopes up towards the rear,

    I'm runing a evo ride plate, I did notice a huge difference from the stock plate but I wouldn't say it would throw you off easier, I am runing the stock intake grate as well

    Our good friend from Chi town said that someone put one on a 1200 pro and it threw him on the first turn,
    I wanted an advantage for the up and coming season, to beat up on the Seadoos in the 800 class,

    I did the cut out on the evolution marine one, thinking it would help not getting thrown,
    Does it turn a lot better than the stock one?
    I have used the hot seat sponsons in the past, but my new hull had some beach house ones on it,
    I was going to try those also, along with some trim tabs and my drop stearing set up,

    I'm runing tracker sponsons. I don't think is has a whole lot to do with turnin, the evo ride plate effects the way the ski is in the water a full speed.

    I think it was LaskT that had the intake grate rip off his Pro 1200..... Not sure if it threw him though.

    The half moon is cut on the hotseat plate because the tapered section on the plate would run into the bottom of the pump. If the stock evo plate doesn't have this cutout, it probably doesn't have as much taper as the hotseat plate in this area. Cutting that out probably would allow the hull to ride a little lower. I did have a R&D grate break off, luckily I was only going about 30 and bracing for a wave when it broke. There really is not much material in the area where the bolt supports the grate. I still run a R&D grate, but I use 5200 marine adhesive when mounting it. Before I just used silicone. I don't ride rough water much, but if I did I would try a worx grate. More material in this area and it loads the pump a little more. I think I lost less than 1mph and 40 or 50 rpm. Doesn't suck the craft down like a R&D 750 grate.
