advice needed: ride plate angle
im busy finalising my setup.
just a few questions, i can not use the search as im on my phone.(doesnt work)
is the optimum rideplate angle: 5dgrees ?
Im at 3.9degrees (with one washer under the front of the plate)
So im assuming ill add one more washer to the front of the plate ?
i currently have a step from the pump shoe to the ride plate (i would say about the thickness of a penny), ie. If i put a penny on the front of the rideplate its flush with the pump shoe... is this corret or should it be flush ?

The step is from the shoe to the plate is ok. We cant tell you the ideal angle. Each ski/plate/tabs are different.

Spaceman i asked the same questions before i could do my rideplate and eveyone answered the same.trial and more trial until u find the optimum balance between speed and handling.
i just installed my plate and used 3 shims each on the front of the plate ,gap between shoe and plate abt 2-3mm.i used 1 shim each at the rear with distance between staright edge to ride plate using vienier caliper is about 24-13mm.
thats my initial setup until i try out my ski this comming weekend and then check weather i need to shim more or less
thats what i was advised to do
