    2 different 800 Grates??..

    I recently picked up 2 R&D 800 Grates from the forum and noticed that they are slightly different....I figured i would run this by everyone to see what they thought....



    One grate has two faux rivets where it says "R&D"...the other does not...This grate also has a slightly shorter "Wing" than the other...everything else is EXACTLY identical....

    I am guessing the one with the shorter wing was modified by a forum member - this is a mod that some people try - with mixed results

    i cut 3/4'' off the rear of mine and logged my best speeds before unported with my 05 with a grate like this....but... was not happy running it all the time modded due to risks involved

    ++1 on the risk involved. I won't take one of those R&D grates above 70 agian, It takes to long to heal. lol

    ....Thank you for the advice....I did give it a couple of passes this morning with the modded grate....no noticeable increase....so i quickly removed it...and put back on the unmodded 800 grate....

    did the modded one have a better hole shot?

    .....not a noticeable one....this setup spins with a 1200 grate pretty bad as well....too much bottom end!!!!....in theory the modded one should be a better holeshot...

    (oops...this is BoostCrzy posting from SLO's computer...i used the opportunity to make him a cool new sig VVVVVV HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!)
