Stock Sponsons - Not True AT ALL
tried doing a board search, no such luck on the topic unless i keep missing the good search terminology.
stock sponsons... the wide flat area that is the underside of the sponsons that rides parallel to the water... your planing surface if you will...
are all stock sponsons totally UN-true and not perfectly flat at all? or is jsut my set screwy?
has someone looked into this already and truing the stock sponsons? bc they are BAD, very bad... alot of curves and dips and waves to them on that flat planing surface
do you think it could have an effect on anything?

Most of us just do the step mod. This helps lift the rear up onto plane quicker, once on plane the sponsons see nothing but air.

so are rivas that I have, but the stock ones stepped help out better for speed runs. I use the rivas for CC.
I have been throwing around the idea of contacting Danny about his stepped aluminum sponsons with adj blades. That would be the best of both worlds.
