Damn, Thursday will be a tough day for the LCQ race guys. If they finish but need repairs there is precious little time for them to do anything to fix their rigs.

Good luck guys.

:wave:Hahaha, yes.

I will be down there the weekend before KOH (press thing, product release), the 19th-21st. Richard is supposed to show up Sunday evening, and my group I originally planned on staying with isn't getting there until late Monday. I figure I'll be able to find some place to unroll a sleeping bag one way or another, but if you're going to be there earlier than later, I'd appreciate a dry shelter. Thanks!

Actually, until I started wanting to really go fast, they were great. Also, they are extremely reliable. The difference comes when speed, and varied terrain, demand bypass shocks. Coilovers and bypasses are very expensive, while the air shocks are cheaper. Even expensive air shocks are cheaper than coilovers and bypasses, though the air shocks are still less reliable.
