Default Search suggestion

I was just wondering if it would be possible to change the forum's search tool so that we could search for 3 letters/numbers instead of the current requirement of 4.
Reason being, if I'm looking for info about a Riedell boot for example... almost all of the model numbers are 3 digits (595, 695, etc.) so you can't run a search for them. Bearing sizes are like that as well (608, 688, 627).

I find that more than half of the time I want to search for something I can't because it's too short. And I never get as good of results with the google tool as with the forum search tool.

Just an idea that seems like it would be an easy change if it could be done
