    Ride Plate Questions

    Hey all,

    I am still having problems with porposing. I know that in a perfect world, Sponsons and Extended ride plate are the way to go, but I do not have them at this point.

    Is it possible to change the pitch of the ride plate to overcome this porposing?

    Thanks

    Sean

    Buy an Ocean Pro Extended Ride plate. It fixed my problem. You can get them on e-bay for $95 directly from Ocean Engineering.

    Sponsons will help, but not as much as that ride plate.

    You will drop 1 or 2 mph with the ride plate, but it my opinion it is well worth it. Your kidneys will thank you. I can now actually go faster through the chop with it.

    You'll be chasing your tail.

    Bite the bullet and get a plate. A stock SLX plate can be pretty reasonable and will help.
