    ride plate testing

    instead of running a crazy angle like 1.100 and having to shim the tabs down.....

    why not run something like .990 and leave the tabs alone???

    also, where the plate goes to the shoe, ive seen some people get the step to .030

    if i can get mine to .015 will it be better?

    is .030 a magic number or should i get it as close as possible without the plate hanging under?

    I guess you could just take for granted that this has already been tested a million times and having shimmed trim tabs significantly improves the quaility of the ride or you could test it yourself and report back what you find out.

    thats what its all about you have to go out there and test and see what makes your ski the fastest.
    Back when I was a single pipe I only ran about .960" on the plate and .110" shims on stock tabs. It handled decent like that and had a great top speed.
