    I modded the 3 bar grate similar to what Jerry did. I got my speed back but still have cavitation on holeshot from a dead start. I used the version 2 of the single bar grate and had no issues with it. 70+ gps and handles chop well. I know another member that uses the V2 R&D single bar grate and has no issues.

    Yes Harry, IMO the version two is a LOT stronger. The thickness of the bars is evident. I personally ran the V2 grate over 70gps during testing of ride plate and nozzle combos with no issues. Also I ran the V2 thru heavy chop without breaking it. The hookup in rough water was very good and less cavitation than the 3 bar version that is out now. I will have two new impellers to run in the near future when time and weather permit. I will be running the V2 grate the entire time.
    Other members with heavily modded VX's are using the V2 with good results and as far as I know,,not a single issue. I cannot vouch for any speed GAIN, but I have not lost any speed with the V2.
    BTW, I was one of the guys that broke the V1 during the time Julio posted his breaking.

    i ran the orig r&d grate for aprox 40 hours gpsing over 70 mph with no probs but it could have broke on any run i didnt see much differnce with the 2nd version so i sent it back now i have the 3rd version which i havent even taken out of the wrapper yet how much speed have u guys actually lost with it?i need this to be a solid setup i dont need my gf going over the bars at high speed or do i want a ton of cavitation and loss of speed.i seen julio modded the stocker anyone else try this?any news on a riva grate?

    Modded stocker is way faster and Safer than the R&D. I broke mine in less than an hour

    I believe it was the first version as did not know they came out with a second one. This was all about 10 months ago
