You guys with the 800 and 900's - how many picks, how long are your skags, and did you take out your coupling blocks in the rear skid? I'm looking to get some good hook, but want to know if top end will sacrfice. I am putting in 192 picks, and I know that will know a few mph off top end. I plan on putting on 6" or 8" skags after break in. But what about the coupling blocks? I hear that if you take them out you will get better hook up on take off. What if any adverse effects are there to doing this?
