    Thumbs up

If this grinding is performed, what potential problem is there by switching from the SS800 grate to the R&D 1200 grate, if any?

    BTW: Its interesting that shimming the rear of the grate will increase hookup. I've been shimming the front for that purpose. Learn something new everyday.

    Thanks, Steve
    Use a 12" steel ruler/ streight edge to check for a nice flat bottom with un obstructed water flow from shoe/grate or hull/shoe rideplate under you ski. Any drag will cost you speed! I would only remove/ blend the front of shoe where the grate meets the shoe back about 3/4 inch a slight taper on this edge should do it. Switching between grates should be fine . If you shim the front of the grate down you increase the hook up of the front wing, If you shim the rear of the grate down you increase hookup on the rear ramp of the grate. Tommy

    New grate ran about the same as the prototype we had a few weeks ago. Preprop pressure was close to the same and no change in handling.

    We did notice it fitting a little high in the shoe but just knocked the leading edge off the shoe a little and it seemed to be fine. Still running upper 90s all day long on Gameover's ski without any problem.

    Thanks Jerry!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Got mine yesterday, but I cannot do anything strenous for the next few days. Well come tomorrow its the next few days and I am going out to put the intake on and I may go try it out at the short lake we got out here. One question, I noticed some have taken and shined up these grates, aren't they coated with some type of antiresistant stuff? I know some of these grates will need to be "cleaned" up, but what about the coating? Why does one wing sit more forward than the other wing?
