Packing Racer Reserves Can't Post

This post is directed to current and former riggers. A "yes" or "no" answer, along with a reason would be much appreciated. Please read carefully and try to stay on subject.

Would you repack a reserve in a Racer rig? For the sake of argument (and to avoid re-addressing an old thread) please assume no dual RSL; either no RSL at all or single-sided set up per manufacturer's instructions. Also assume the rig is in excellent condition, and no more than a few years old. Finally, please assume the reserve is a currently-made PDR.

The reason I ask is because not too long ago someone in the NW was trying to sell a Racer. He was very honest and said that the reason was because he couldn't find a rigger in the NW that would repack his reserve.

We all know that the Racer is the only currently-manufactured rig in the US that uses a fully external reserve pilot chute. To the best of my knowledge, it's also the only one with a 2-pin reserve.

Please keep replies in line with the question at hand. No comments regarding the Racer's looks or differences with other rigs unless it has to do with the reserve container. Also, please no comments on cost-of-ownership due to 2-pin reserve as it relates to AADs.

Those of you who've been in the sport for any length of time know that jumpers seem to either love or hate this particular rig, for various reasons including the reserve system, rig's appearance, etc.

Thanks.
