We investigate numerically high speed granular flows down an incline and focus our attention on the influence of the restitution coefficient e of binary collisions on the nature of the flow regimes. We show in particular that e plays a major role in rapid flows. Decreasing e leads in general to denser flows but also quicker flows. The increase of the mean flow velocity with decreasing e is explained as the result of the clustering instability which produces a dense and cold core moving very fast as a plug.
