    Default Restrictor Plate

    With Mini-trucks becoming legal in Oklahoma in November, I need to know how to remove the restrictor plate.
    The new law states it must have top speed of around 55mph, so it frees owners to remove the plates.
    All the dealers around here are scared to even talk about removing it, but say it is not hard.

    My truck is on order, so I don't even know what the transmission restrictor plate looks like.
    I'm guessing a hacksaw will do the trick?
    The truck will be a Subaru Sambar.

    Any info is appreciated,
    Josh

    mine didn't come with a restrictor plate, but from the pics i've seen, they are welded to the sheet metal around the shifter, i would recommend using an angle grinder with a cut-off wheel.

    Thanks for the info guys. Hopefully it won't be too hard and I can do it myself. We'll see when the truck gets here.

    Another question--do people usually have to remove the top of the shifter to get the plate off? If so, how does the Subaru's shifter nob come off? I know the 4x4 has a button on the shifter and I wouldn't want to mess anything up.
