    What a difference a rideplate makes...

    Did my own rideplate mod. I must have did something right as I gained 3.4 mph. Previous best was 76.1. 15psi, 8600 rpm Ran it today in the middle of the heat and got 79.5

    Very stable, I wasn't expecting it to be so smooth. I need to take it out when the air is better.

    Duke did an old Stage3 RXP with just the OPAS BO plates not the Pro's and I could superman it pass 80+ mph. Couldn't believe it at first. The rideplate mod works pretty good on an RXPX too.

    Or what would he charge if a plate was sent to him for this 3+ mph plate mod?

    PM me if the service is offered.

    A stock plate 04 RXP with 15lbs boost and 8600rpm should of been way over 80mph, so something is definitely holding you back.
