What B plate you use on your 8.2?
Have your experienced switching back to original B plate?
I've been using the low-B plat on my 8.2E but recently got the regular B-plate. Hopefully I'll get to try it out soon and see how it affects handling.
Personally I like the low B most of the time, but the original B plate does tame the car down a bit and make it a little less aggressive, I think the original is a bit easier to drive overall.
I tried out the original B plate during practice last week and I will say that I thought it was a nice improvement over the low b-plate. It felt alot easier to drive and allowed to tune in more steering withou that twitchy feeling that you would have had with the low B plate.
so do you get more steering out of the original b plate . i mean what are the differences any way anyone ?
What inserts do you use in the a plate?

I found the car to be less aggressive with the low b plate
When I went back and forth between the STD B Plate and the Lower B Plate is the twitchy part of the car went away when I used the STD B plate. Along with the car being less twitchy the car lost overall steering and did not let the car enter the corner nearly as aggressive as I could with the lower B Plate. Something we could try now though is using the Avid Pills to lower the B plate by 1 mm and see if we could find a middle ground between the two.
i just did that but went back to lower plate didnt like it
good to know.
Hmmm. So one set comes with pins and the other doesn't. .. do they both need that pin set for installation? Which one is better? I hear some saying the "low" b plate enters the corner more aggresive, yet has a "twitch"...??? Im confused. But, I suppose they both have the capability of driving fine... seems like its more of personal driving style / preference?
So many questions!
it really does completely depend on your driving style. Most people that run the lower B plate will use the old style steering rack with ackerman adjustments to help smooth out the steering. The lower b plate does enter the corner harder then the original. I would try both and see what works best for you personally. if you like a more aggressive car then i would think that you like the lower b plate.
