Adjusting the Macc Sponsons
The instructions say up and forward is least aggressive, down and back is most aggressive, trying to find a happy medium. Has anyone played with these much? I want to put a set on my daughter's ski, but trying to figure out a good starter position that's one step more aggressive than stock on her VXS. Any ideas?
Also, these have an adjustable "trim tab" feature. Has anyone used this to get the nose down on a VXR/VXS?

Do they have adjustable backing plates or is that the trim tab adjustment you are talking about?

If you look at the back of the backing plate there is a little "trim tab" that is adjustable:

First ride with the sponsons were eh. Turned harder, but still slipped a little in some big turns. Also in the 20-40 MPH range it seems to walk from one sponson to the other. Hoping that can be fixed by putting the trim tabs down in the back. Setting is in the bottom right hole of the four shown above.

How did you set the backing plate?

All the way up. Need to try all the way down next.

Were you able to see if they helped with the bounce at all?

I've got my ride plate shimmed right now, actually too much shim. I was able to do a full superman on light ripple with two bars yesterday and the thing didn't skip a lick. But my guess is the sponsons won't help.
