    Bolt On Ride Plate Extension

    Do you guys think it is possible to have the ride plate extension bolted on the existing ride plate using the bolts encircled in the pic. It will obviously have to be bent down for it to be flush with the bottom of the ride plate. I think it would be more durable this way than welded onto the ride plate.

    Sorry for poor image quality, just used my phone cam.

    I've wondered the same thing, just not sure where the coolant passages start as per your red circles. If it didn't affect the coolant and you could remove those bolts and stick in the extension..that'd be puuurfect!

    I was looking at the same thing on Sunday while changing my impeller. Even if the bolts went to the passage youd have to seal them like they are now. A brake press and some 3/16 stainless. I`d say no more than 4 inches.

    The plate was 6by9 with 4inches out over the pump nozzle and curved up to the nozzle.

    I wouldn`t have gone past the nozzle and would not have curved it. A straight edge would yeild better results.

    Just looked at an RXT and Don`t see much gain past a couple inches.

    2" scrubs speed straight off the plate.

    My best results were with a 1" extension. It worked wonders

    It's not because i couldn't leave well enough alone and tried adjusting the extension by bending it with a crescent wrench and i broke the weld

    Since then i have implemented some new things to help with the porpoising issue at high speed. One of them being the Race Engineering block off's.
