    I had it on a ski I think for CC racing it would be one less thing to think about whle racing. I will tell you it was a pain in the a$$ to adjust but when it was right it was cool to to use when running the solum course...

    I will add it sucks for running topend though

    The auto drop nozzle is a breeze to setup once you understand it's abilities.

    -Don't set the turn bars too tight, or it will nose in tight turns.
    -Set your middle bar to set your nozzle height.
    -The new ones work with stock trim...best of both worlds.

    Dude,
    I'd fix the Variable trim. It gives you a chance to make the GPR playful one day, and planted in the rough the next.

    If you HAVE a auto drop nozzle, AND the trim go with both for best of both worlds. If you are going to race closed course?? Autodrop nozzle. If you mostly just go to the lake, fix the trim.

    It can be frustrating sometimes to have so many choices, but it's WAY BETTER than only having one choice, that may not match your riding style.

    When you say "the new ones" work with the stock trim. Which one do you mean ? I have Skat set up now (venturi and nozzle). I am trying to come up with a way to use the stock trim with it.

    The new R&D auto drop works in conjunction with the VTS making the amount of drop adjustable. You can make the system inactive by trimming the VTS past neutral or where ever you set it. The nut in my hanh threads on the VTS cable. It changes the camover point instead of being fixed like the old ones.
