My question is it worth 3 times the amount over another good flexplates?

I won't pay 3 times the $$$ just cause it looks better, are their any advantages over the others?

Did I miss something on my build? I didn't upgrade my flexplate when I did a new motor and FLT lvl5 w/yank SS3600..

What are the advantages other than lighter weight?

I thought everyone knew about these flex plates...if you compare a regular flex plate, even something like a TCI flex plate to the reactor one, you can tell the reactor one is build't top notch. Its a lot thicker then the others so its good for more HP and i went well with my build bc i plan on going the 4l80 route later on and the Reactor Flex plate comes with all LS style bolt patterns.

I knew all about this flexplate but what I was wondering was is it actually lighter, stronger or just looks nicer?..

..anyone ever weight it?

I went with B&M for $100, SFI certified or whatever...lt1z uses/used it, no issues...haven't heard anything negative about the reactor other than it was overkill unless you're making BIG power...

I've been told, and I've heard that reactor is the top of the line. My builder nate Corwin, at nasty nates performance, turned me on to it. I trust him and he knows his shit. I Highly suggest him for all of your future mods. He does great work and takes pride in his work, and isn't over priced. He is a member on our forum and is located in Fort wayne, Indiana.

There is the Circle D one also, I just don't see the point of paying over 3 times the $$$
