    We had one come off at speed at a race one year. Good idea to inspect them regularly. Bit worse than that is when comes up on trailer and a couple of mounting corners left and the rest is gone...

    Truth!

    When installing mine, I noticed the rear plate would not seat flat unless I installed spacer washers under the front two holes at the very front of the grate. The entire plate wanted to "teeder todder" back and forth until the front washers were added to space the front mount. It's my opinion people tighten all 6 bolts down thinking it's normal, placing bending tension on the grate. Over time, it breaks.

    Unfortunately you have the older grate ,there have been issues with them regardless how they were installed including mine as the mounting bosses have hairline cracks from a few hours till totally giving way like yours did..

    Call Glenn @ R&D I'm sure he'll send you the newer version with the thicker mounting bosses ,no charge and free shipping at least that's what he did for me as admits the design and casting were below standard...if I still owned the grate Id post a pic , might still have one..
