    Stock will be fastest, but some people shim them down a bit to reduce porpoising, at the expense of a few tenths of an MPH up top.

    And I believe that the plastic and aluminum stock tabs are identical, just different materials. Aftermarket tabs are thicker.

    1. Aftermarket tabs are thinner.
    2. Plastic tabs flex so shimming is not desired.
    3. Cut aftermarket tabs have yielded good results
    4. OEM aluminum tabs have yielded good results

    R&D tabs are .150 thicker on the outer edge and .030 thicker on the inner edge than the stock plastic tabs.
