    RXP's aren't know for flying threw chop in the first place, If your looking for a handing fix i'd go another way, if your looking for any acouple MPH it's perfect. Jim's plate is gong to add lift to you're ski, unless you're going really fast you're handling will stay the same.

    I do not think that there is very many of Jim's open loop plates out there yet. I know of one that had been installed, but I am not sure of the final results. I received my open loop plate from Jim last week, just have not had time to install it.

    Since you asked about the "plate that retains open loop" I assuming you meant so say retains closed loop, the stock looking plate.

    If this is so, I can give some feedback. With a full tank I've seen about 1mph better than my previous best with 3ish bars. Also the water/air temp was around 10-15 degrees hotter than before the plate. Supprisingly running through some moderate chop wasn't much different than before.

    With less fuel, cooler day, fill the plate/grate holes(all like in the previous runs) I think I'll be around 2ish mph faster . . .
