Default Re: thick or thin base gasket?

I have a slant head and my motor has great compression. Along with shift kit, tuned pipe, CNS carb I get about 42mph on a flat road with no wind.

so is that thicker then the original gasket? what about no gasket and just use silicone to seal it?
its not how fast you go... its how you go fast
