    The R&D is better and what he works on for the GPR. I had him do my R&D plate and everything looks top notch.

    Hello Tanny, If you are just looking for speed the riva plate will work fine after i mod it. If you are looking for speed and handling then you will need the R&D plate. If you have any questions you can call me at the shop or on my cell, And i have the plates in stock. Thank you, Jim

    plate

    Hello I just wanna say this...
    I had a modded riva plate given, they are a bit faster that the RD. I recently bought one of jims ff plates and It handles 1000% ON THE MONEY!!!!. Apart from that I a picky person to say the least and jim was right there with me on the water thru the cell till 7PM! until I got the right angle on my boat. I went from 68.8 heads, free flow, 03 pump with a 14/20,efi,800 grate, and a race filter. to 71.9/72 MPH on my boat with his plate. Mind you I had a modded riva plate and every time that thing whould see a ripple on the water plate boat had a fit. Not with jims plate. Also he send hours on the phone going over non plate related issues. So I say get jims plate. You won't be dissapointed.

    WOW! 3+ mph gain over a modded riva plate. I wonder what gain I will get over a stock r&d plate since it is modded to FF spec.

    Jim's Plates are A+!!!

    If I can suggest the IR plate you have is very good (and yes so is the J plate so I am not taking sides here). If I had $400 to spend on my ski I would spend it elsewhere rather than on a 2nd rideplate.
