    Rideplate options??

    14 RXPX what options do I have other than going open loop? What can I expect when taking off rideplate? Has anyone tried Speedfreaks for rideplate mods with new T3 hull or should I avoid them? Thanks for any feedback.

    Im in the same boat as you pal, although I have open loop system.

    Jims ride plate mod seems to be the best and he does a closed loop one as well but not as big of an improvement as the open loop system.

    not heard about the speed freaks one tho??? whats that one like???

    I looked on the GH store didn't see closed loop plate by Jim? I called Speedfreaks no answer. A 1.5-2mph gain would great I know the open loop would be more.

    To have closed loop cooling and a fast ride plate, use a heat exchanger with Jim's open loop plate........

    So I just need a different heat xchanger? Who makes what I need and how much$$? Here's the kicker I have my ride holes filled with waterweld. Will a small torch melt away the weld?

    They don't state it but he can do it, its just not as aggressive as the open loop.

    Small heat gun and pick away at it pal =/

    I cut out nickel-sized circles of wax paper and inserted into ride plate holes before filling. Try that next time, it will save you a LOT of pick away time

    Tinfoil works pretty good as well.
