I have the Ryobi, and I would remove it. It will give You just a little more height to the bit. It may also hold the router a bit more solid., just My opinion

Remove it.

I take it you got the one with the router included. Did you have a look at the assembled one in the store? I would take the plastic base off it anyway, as I do with my Mastercraft router on my Ryobi table. You can also make auxiliary bases for different purposes, for instance to give yourself a straight edge, or to make a trammel (circle guide) The plastic face is for handheld routing.

Cheers,
Roger

I don't think so, but every router I have seen with the plastic base plate come off with the help of removing 3, or4 screws. Lay them aside with the plate. I have seen one small router with a sticky sheet plastic. Those are the only ones that need to stay!
