V tech or R&D R-3
which of these would you recommend for stock class closed course racing?
I was planning on going with a V-tech over the winter until I read where it said I would need to modify the exhaust, which would not be legal for stock class. what makes the V-Tech need exhaust mods where the R-3 does not? Thanks in advance for any help.

DH go with R&D ,yes your gonna have to go with a SCOM too (stock legal) as VTECH advertises their reflash with addition to ignition timing advance and fuel curves overrides the speed limiter so no SCOM needed..
But R&Ds long winning record in racing and their constant dedication to these skis ,Glenn and Bill Chapin I feel make a good and safer performance product,though there's always a risk with whoever when these engines are put to maximum..
Recently R&D had casting issues with their intake grates on the Ultra 300 But Glenn redesign and improved it...that's dedication

thanks for the help, guys. I am leaning towards the R3. Are there any other Reflashes out there worth looking into?

You won't need a SCOM with the R&D ride plate I don't think. I'm pretty sure that the Ride Plate tricks the ECU limiter to think the Skinis going slower than what it really is. If you don't have of don't want the Ride Plate then yes, you will need a SCOM

You need the SCOM with an R&D plate if you wanna get past 68mph,the washer mod or metal plate was used before the SCOM was designed ..

Over here , you cant use a SCOM in stock class .
but you can use a reflashed ecu ...Go figure
thats why the Kspeed makes the most sense
