^ Oh, cheater! hahaha. 3/16" open corners are still tough though. And 1/8 to 3/16 are really tuff. And 1/8 to 1/8 are really, really tough. Can't imagine doing anything much thinner than with MIG that unless you blend.

I turn it waaay down for open corners. Problem for me is staying perfectly straight with any pattern and not letting it spill over edges.

For thinner stuff, instead of trying to spill over the edges, purposely eat the edges so your bead rolls over the outside

I’ve been talking about it forever now, but I will for sure be rebuilding/revalving these guys this weekend.

The truck did very well in the whoops with just the C/O’s in the front, but does terrible on jumps and g outs (slams hard). Once I figure out the current C/O valving, I’ll need some advise on valving with the added BP
