JW Wheel flexplate

Anyone still having problems with the wheel? Long ago there was a thread about the wheel coming apart and only having 6 welds per side. Some said they went with 12 welds per side which as far as I know, the new ones still have 6 welds per side. What flexplate is everyone using nowadays? Just wondering...

I have heard from a few customers of mine that the "REACTOR" is the one to use ... I don't know the brand of who makes that flexplate, though.
I think it is COAN but, there may be a separate company by that name..

Yeah, I have heard of the Reactor but I have never seen who sells them. Lem just told me the JW was still good to use so that is good enough for me :-)

I guess this is their website? Don't have any pricing though.
