    Question R and D plate... Shims?!

    my ski came with a RD plate and I have tried various shim combos- 2 in the back, 1 in back, 2 in the front.. So far it is fastest with the two in the front and zero in the back.. However, this does include the big factory shims also. I would like to remove the factory shims, and clearance the pump and plate to fit with maybe one small shim in just the front. Does anyone run this plate without the factory shims?? Is it worth the effort? I would like to pick up some speed, and think this will be beneficial but would like some input! Currently running 80+ and a new plate is not in the cards right now. Haha- thanks for your help!
