Re: [Virococha] What the heck?

It's incredible that the same guy from 4 posts up who ghad no idea what was going on with his rig, now seems to have a comprehensive opinion of the situation.

How it looks to me, and as it common with Racers, your PC cap is not seperating from the spring, the excess quick look is simply hanging out of the PC. This excess loop is either simply tucked under the PC cap, or some riggers might also run a single turn of seal thread through the end of the loop and the edge of the PC cap to hold it in place. Neither of which requires removal of anything, or breaking the seal on the pack job.

If there's more to the story, or the pic does not show the extent of the problem, that's one thing. If the problem is what I think it is, then you wasted a day of jumping looking at a rig that had a very minor problem that any rigger (and most long-time Racer owners) could have fixed in less than 5 minutes.

Just for reference, my first and second rigs were Racers and I have about 3500 jumps between the two of them.
