    protec shortie plate is the best top speed plate for the 1100 raider. Period.

    Now, if your looking for hook up, it would help, but if you want a ski that can hook up better on turns and stuff, than you should not be owning a raider.

    I have a 96 xp that hooks up great and turns on a dime with beach house sponsons I was just trying to get something that would stop my friend from getting thrown off at high speeds when it decides to make a unexpected hook and throw them off but it is funny as hell when it happens (LOL)so I was trying to see if the ride plate would fix that problem if it doesnt what does fix that problem if anything
    thanks again

    traits of the strakes of the hull. I think the ext steering nozzle +50mm helps reduce that

    The groovy ride plate is very good for normal water conditions. it helps keep the ski pointed in kinda the right direction, and doesn't porpoise in the chop like the shorty. If you shim it down in front and plug the 2 center mounting holes it's also within 1/2 mph as fast as the shorty. at least in my experience.
