    Re-place Brackets

    Hey fellas I have spent the past couple days up dating my support brackets on the GPR. First off I noticed that I was losing speed last week and found that my pump shoe was pulling away.. After further inspection I found that my up dated brackets had failed causing the bolts to spin thus pulling the pump shoe down... made some heavy duty brackets for about a total of $30.00 // 2 for the pump shoe and one for the intake grate.. the stock intake brackets were bad to and when I went to take the intake out the insert came with it .. just a word of advise replace those brackets before it is to late... oh and Thanks Jim for letting me use the shop for a few days and for putting up with my mouth and little mans questions

    The updated OEM brackets failed or did you have that R&D bracket?? That R&D one I had was made out of really soft aluminum.

    definitely good advice! And the intake grate bracket is a good idea considering the amount of force the grate has to withstand at speed
