Cool man, I like your attitude!
However, I can't imagine it would be terribly helpful. There are just so many variables with contest boats, especially at low-level amateur events. The ballast setups and the underwater features of the contest site can change the wake so much. In my experience, the wakes I ride on at contests are rarely perfectly dialed.
I rode behind the same X15 at two consecutive INT tour stops and the wake was completely different each time. My strategy is to ask other riders what speed they're riding at and how they feel about the wake and adjust accordingly. I also like to watch the wake from shore and see what it looks like at different speeds.
After the first hit of my run, I can usually tell if I've guessed right or not, and I can signal for a correction from the driver or change the tricks I'm doing to better suit the wake.
