    Another exploding 800 grate!

    Alteeza (Jesse) was out on James' ski and the 800 grate obliterated, he can't even find it! He is ok, he says he's a little sore but, here we go again. He will post the actual event later.

    JERRY! We need them grates man..........

    Don't even run the POS 800 grate, especially the newer ones!!! I have countless hours on several 1200 grates and still running strong. Until Jerry is able to provide us with SS 800s its just not worth it IMO..

    Man this is scary. Especially since i was running 94+ mph with my POS aluminum grate last weekend

    Mike, we are working as fast as we can on the SS grates but are at the mercy of the foundry.

    Pistonwash that was probably the grate that I sent James to test on his ski. I thought he was still riding around on the 1200 grate all this time I've been 86+ several times on that grate.

    Jesse thought it was the 1200 grate..but he heard a thump. thump and the ski turned left hard. The grate is gone, I hope it did'nt go through James pump. I am not sure if the 800 or 1200 is on that ski. James will have to tell us.
