Thanks for taking the time to put this together.
I believe I get the gist of staging. My problem always seems to be structural stability.
I've tried several methods (I'm not doing it "by the numbers". Just by feel at this point), including SRB's with and without decouplers, externally staged liquid boosters, staged with decouplers. On 1st stage separation, if my rocket hasn't blown up on the pad, or shaken to pieces, I often get a collision with one or more of the first stage elements, resulting in a failure not long after during 2nd stage burn.

I think I may have to FRAPs a launch, or take some screenies to give you an idea.

Thanks again Judge .
