    R&D ride plate

    I know this has been asked before but it's been a while.
    Has anyone been running the R&D ride plate?
    I have one coming (looking for that UPS man today )
    I will have it installed and tested this weekend.
    How much better does it hook up in the rough VS the Riva plate?
    Has anyone run it with and without the 1* wedge?

    Sir Jimmy,

    I run with out normally, only because I didnt have a 1 deg

    in this form it is slower than RIVA
    but rough water ride and boat feel is much improved for my riding conditions

    Finished up the install tonight.
    The plate fit very good along the sides. It seems to sit higher up on the hull than the Riva especially where it hits the shoe. My Riva plate hung lower than the shoe by 1/16" The R&D plate sits 1/16" higher.
    I'll be running it this weekend with the 1* wedge.

    Let us know how it goes. Ride plate and wedge are going to be my first two upgrades and the R&D and 1* looks like a good option for me.

    Im interested to see how much(if any) speed you lose with that plate compared to the riva.
