    got a farthing plate on a vxr ? please step in.

    Tired of playing with the stock plate. I have tried numerous combinations of shims front and rear to stop the bounce and it just won't go away. its gotten better but not gone. Does the farthing plate bolt up and work or does it have to be shimmed as well ? R&D grate is on the way but haven't got to try that with the stock plate yet. looking to switch anyway for handling. the stock one is kinda sketchy sometimes.

    yup. i'm not going to remove them and damage the hull. they distribute the pressure evenly on the hull. I don't see how removing them will help anyway.

    Very subjective statement. Good handling characteristics to one person may be terrible to another. Try it before you dismiss it.

    I would guess that if you are shimming again on top of the factory shim plates that your plate is too far down. I removed mine 4 years ago and am running close to 20 lbs of boost without issue. My plate, which is a vx jims modified plate, sits a lot higher up than the stock. I believe that when I was using the stock plate with the stock shims removed I had a good bounce at WOT. I gained speed but couldn't get rid of the bounce. I'm sure if I tried longer I could have gotten rid of the bounce by shimming the back of the plate more, but I went with the vx plate.
