    Default Ride Plate to Buy

    I'm looking for a complete ride plate kit or at least the brackets and cut my own plate. ...... Any sellers out there ?

    10/10 is your intake machined for a shoe and rideplate?...if so all you need is the 8 x 18 plate and a yoke. if not they do make some bolt on setups...i'd call Tom At JBP

    Its his user name, you can find him in the Parts Spam.. Do a search for Rideplates and it should pop up .. But like Tint said, is your intake machined for a shoe and ride plate ?? If not now would be a good time to do it since its winter .. You can also call Tom @ JBP (805) 466-4719, hell of a guy to deal with ..


    Good Luck

    No. It's never had a shoe or anything. This is going on the 69'Cheetah that I gave to my son " Dakota" and he's just wanting it to stop proposing so he can flash his rail easier. Not looking for anything fancy. Just to stop the hop

    1010, there are a few things that can cause hop! Weight and tank placement, bottom and how much pitch in the nozzle. Hook in the bottom will sometimes cause hop!
    I have a ride plate and a cradle pattern you can have but you need a machined intake for it to be right!

    This hull is extremely heavy( 1969 Cheetah) . Like I said before. It's wood ........ I'm just gonna have him run it like it is this summer. I'll finish my motor and swap it out in my Hawiian after I do some pump work and next winter I'll pass the Hawiian on to my son, park the Cheetah in storage and get ME a WINGER!!! Whooop Whooooop !!!!

    I'm positive like the Cheetah he won't mind my " Hand me downs". Lol. Hey he'll be 16 in a month. I gave him that Cheetah as a " Hand me down" and it's been a ball watching him in the old beater With his foot down squirti b a tail .I'm sure he won't mind the Hawiian as a pass over either.

    Yea. Piazza preached to me one time about " Buy NOTHING BUT a Winger" of course the " Know it all status " I am plagued with I didn't listen. But I'll be the first to say now I should have. I feel confident I can break that Shsllow V Hawiian into the 90s this year and it'll tide me over a lake season. Next winter once again I'll start a build all over again! Geeeeeeeesh! Hahaha

    I'll kick it around. No matter what I do to that heavy hull I'm scared it'll still hop. I'll let Dakota decide if he wants to hack and whittle on it ........ Thanks though. The price is damn sure RIGHT on it. :-D
