I didnt look for this on the race chains as it is all allowed. But did any of the race chain guys stone the side of cutters?

What I did to my chain.
I clipped the back of the cutter.
I tunneled the back of the cutter a little bit.
I thinned the outside edge of the top plate of the cutter.
I did a square grind on a Simington grinder.
I thinned the rivet heads.
I ground down the top edge of all the links of the chain at an angle to make go through the kerf better.
I cleaned up all the gullets and the links.
I did take a stone and used it a little not much on the top and side of the cutter.   
I never used a file on any of it. 
The rakers I shortened and thinned the inside edge only.
I also dropped the rakers a little.   I only eye balled them.
