good choice. Nancy and the rest at JumpShack are fantastic. hoping you got magnetic riser covers. I had them mod my old (1998) rig for a very reasonable price...

WinkI just got back into jumping after 30+ years and used the club's old racer. I was so impressed by it that I bought a used 2K3. The rig didn't fit (too big) but was very happy with the improvements over the older racer, except for the tuck tab riser covers. They kept un-tucking. I think part of the problem was because the rig didn't fit well over the shoulders. Anyway, I sold the rig and ordered a new 2K3. It comes with magnetic riser covers. I hope my new rig looks as good as yours. Smart choice.

Wasn't there recently a tandem racer double fatality because of bad RSL routing / placement design?

Misrouted, yes. There was also a recent fatality in hawaii due to misrouting the PC bridle on an unknown rig. What's your point?

Matt, great looking rig...I recently took delivery of my 5th racer, will own nothing else.

Sangi, it was a misrouted rsl, not a bad design, TI did not release one side of the rsl to clear it.

You actually bought a Racer???? I'm just kidding..... that is a good looking rig! I have a good amount of friends that are very loyal to their Racers. I love my rig but man you Racer guys are crazy in love with your rigs ;)

Id say it took about 6 weeks give or take a few days, I kept changing stuff. Jennine there was pretty patient with me shes awesome to deal with and I also got a few calls from Nancy that showed me alot about the company I love my racers man. Call up there and ask to talk to Jennine she'll let you know about the progress.

The pop top has been around since the 70's same with one pin reserves. I guess it is all old technology. Tongue

Ummm, actually the reserves I jumped in the '80s were made in the 60's and 70's My PDR was made in 96Wink

My other two reserves were made in this decade.

Racer fans are so defensive!

Ha!
