Cool How yo Modify discs

OBVIOUSLY modifying a disc for tournament is against the rules.
I am asking out of curiosity, and to take an old disc to a field for some fun and trick shots. In what ways can you modify a disc? What is your most beat up warped or modded disk and how does it fly?

At a bachelor party we flung an old cyclone up in the air and took turns shooting it with bird shot. So this cyclone is now about 250 grams with a lot of dimples. Seems to fly further and straighter.

Tune and dome up or flatten. Flatter = Faster less glide. Tune for Stability.

These are all extreme ideas, but...

You could take your disc out to your driveway and rub the bottom of the disc on it a bunch. Throw it into an empty cement mixer for a while. Fold the disc in half around the entire edge. Wrap it in a towel and run it on no heat/low for a cycle or two. Throw rollers and thumbers in a parking lot for a while.

I made a board flat Champion Starfire out of an obnoxiously domey one. Place disc on flat surface, flight plate down. Fill with boiling water, add heavy plate weights in a pot on top of it. Pot should be larger diameter than the rim. Let cool. Repeat.

It's a shame that the PLH doesn't change nearly as extreme as the flightplate.

I knooooooooow. But it definitely is faster and holds a line better after I flattened it though.

Cool definatly like the ideas, has anyone cut the flight plate out all together. How was it? I enjoy some of the extreme ideas.

One time, I took a Pro D Crush and lined the underside of the rim with four bottle rockets held on with Gorilla Tape. Rocket powered disc. It was awesome until it caught fire.

You had to light all four fuses and throw it before the first rocket went off rofl, but it definitely picked up spin when the rockets went off.
