I haven't tried it or could his claim be veriified by other posters, but it does make sense and in theory should work.
Also, there's a 7.5WT available, if you wanted to creep up on it.

I knew somebody here had the T800 cartridges, but, couldn't remember who.

The nice thing about the cartridges is that they can be swapped from bike to bike, as one moves on. It's a long-term investment.
