I'm wondering if the TC/LC algorithm is asymmetric in nature - quick to cut power but relatively slow to allow its return.

Maybe each poll should pick the top three questions from the same general category, with a different category each time so that nobody's favorite category gets shut out every time.

Is there some upper end to how fast a bullet should be spinning, and wouldn't there be some dependency on muzzle velocity?

Maybe a little too much focus on the throttle, generally. Pretty sure I'm seeing an off-course/DNF at 0:36 or so.

My guess is that adding this complexity is better justified once you add propulsion to what the front suspension needs to cope with.
