    Jim's Ride Plate with Skegs

    I mostly use my modded RXT to wakeskate behind, but I also like to go fast. I was wondering if Jim's Ride Plate with Skegs would make my RXT more stable when someone is ridding behind it. It feels really loose in the rear. When they cut out, the steering has to be corrected to keep going straight. I was wondering if Jim's Ride Plate with Skegs would keep it straight. Also, my current fastest speed is 71.5. What kind of improvement would Jim;s Ride Plate with Skegs make to the top end.

    jims rideplate will improve tracking or it won't be as "loose in the rear" and topspeed will improve. I can't speak for an rxt but on my rxp the ski was more stable at speed with the skegs and the plate was good for 2mph.
    hope this helps

    One thought - if you hadn't removed the OPAS already, you could have put a ball valve inline with the OPAS water line. That way, you could turn the valve off, leaving the OPAS paddles down all the time when wake boarding. I'm sure you would have much more control... Ron

    All the GTX and RXT rideplates are the same; i'm not sure if the RXPs are different... Ron

    It will help, but counter steer is necessary even in large boats so that part will never be eliminated
