no offense taken in any way. DFX is a pretty complex skin for sure, and there is a lot of stuff running under the hood. It has been done, as Blue said, as efficiently as possible. I would start by disabling/un-registering some of the plugins in the RideRunner\Plugins folder, and see if that makes a difference. That is a great place to start at least. If not, then you can rule one thing out. Check out the sticky in the root RR forum for how to speed up RR. There are some pretty good tips in there, that I gathered from personal experience, as well as from other threads on the forum.
