    Its a nice plate...Bites in High speed turns..Requires sponsons to be very soft to compensate. Adds more nose pressure than the R&D.

    Thanks, can you give a comparison of it to the stock and R&D plates? Does more nose pressure mean 3 shims to stop the bounce with R&D versus two shims on the Riva? Versus 37 shims on the stock plate?

    Less shims needed on riva.

    Stock fastest-prone to bounce
    R&D -1 or 2 mph - best all around - tag racings plate of choice.
    Riva -2mph from stock but handles very well in chop and race applications.
