    single bar or double bar on triple pipe ski

    Hi Guys
    I am racing this weekend in a rough water enduro,ski currently runs 85 plus mph in fairly flat water,i will be setting the ski up with a standard ride plate with welded extension and a 1200 single bar grate and extended trim tabs,i haven't been on the water yet with this setup but am sure i will loose 5mph,i would like to now if there is any difference in racing with the single bar versus the double bar 1200,also is there any problems i should look out for running high 70,s through chop on this setup.
    I have also been told the old style R&D plate shimmed can do the trick or i also have the jims FF plate which i could shim down also,what setup would you guys have in this race with my speeds all suggestions welcome

    The FF plate can be shimmed enough to work in chop and still faster then stock plate. I run .800 for riding a course in chop.

    Single bar will help with hookup.

    A 3 degree nozzle off the three seater helps a lot too. If using aftermarket sponsons, all the way down and back.

    don't forget to shim the trim tabs down (at least 3 mm)

    if this is long distance (and not CC) I would even use stock stepped sponsons

    Unless you have some type of pressure relief mod, you
    will probably be overstuffing your pump with the
    single bar grate. Do not run a new setup without testing
    it first.

    Guys we will be testing Joes skis before the race will post the differences.

    The course is a short enduro track the problem being the wash has nowhere to go apart from bounce of the wall and came back at you so it will be more like a washing machine then chop.

    Here a link to the course where entering.

    I am setting up with a FF plate 1st at .800 see how i go then try the stock plate .
