No problem Cory, not like you guys havn't ever given me parts or tools to use. IVY is gonna try to be prepaired as much as possible for Utah. Seems like every race we run into more and more things we find out we need.
I think this is a great idea also, and I have asked Corry(the tech guy) his opinion on it but it's hard to get an accurate opinion without taking a vote in the drivers meeting or something. I say you look at the top five in qualifying and who ever has the most cars in it gets to start first?I think the only totally fair way to race us is to split our classes completely - but......we all know that's not gonna happen - lol!
Next best thing, IMO, is what Grant suggested......we could try splitting the start at the beginning of the race. Line each class up in order of their own qualifiers, and then gap the second field, who will also be in order of their own qualifier.
I also think the only fair way to determine which class gets to start first, is by top qualifier for that particular round. That way, it's not always going to be one class in front, and the other in the back at every race.....it will also give everyone a little extra incentive to get fastest time overall. No one wants to be in the back!
I want to thank dan kelly for fixing my shifter.and the wellers for all their help if it wasnt for jason i wouldnt of been able to race on sunday.and jimmy from extrem for valving my rear shocks .it was good seeing everyone good job to cody...and to utv underground so we all can post are thoughts.thanks joey.No problem Cory, not like you guys havn't ever given me parts or tools to use.

funny yopu mention that Rog..I heard that someone with an older yellow race rhino had a lot of questions about the SR1 class??? hmmmmm.... now wouldnt that shake things up a bit!
hmmm. thought he saidOh Yes SIR!
Drivers be on your A- game if he comes out
The Flyin Banana will never be an SR1 car. It may see some laps with Brandon Arthur behind the wheel some time soon though.
Greg,Thats a tough one.. It would be awesome if they could run us at different times, but i know we probably don't have enough cars to make that happen, plus i am sure it would be tough to squeeze in another race just due to time constraints.
From my perspective, it makes things difficult trying to get past 4 cars not even in your class, to try and reach the guys in your class to compete with them. But also, that is due to bad qualifying, so that is kind of the luck of the draw. And i assume its the same way for the faster guys in the unlimited class trying to get past the SR1 that are between them and the leaders out in front.
I don't know how scattered we are at the competition yellow, but if we have enough room, i think starting the two classes with a half lap difference might be a possibility, but then with the faster cars in the 2nd pack, they might catch the slower guys of pack #1, and that could be even worse..
I think thats a good idea about which ever group is faster in qualifying, gets to start out front. Just from the two tracks i have witnessed, it seems the more turns, the faster the unlimiteds are, and with speedworld, it seemed like the SR1's had the advantage there.. But i would think there has to be some sort of a delay between the starting of the 2 classes.
It seems like everyone is within a few seconds of each other if there are no mechanical problems, so starting them in a split might work pretty well.. only way to find out, is to try it.. and i would be down for that.
As for the inversion, i don't really have a grasp on how that works for the other classes right now. Isn't it sort of random, they move some around, but not all? Or do they just flip it around so the fast cars are in the back, and slow cars up front? Not sure.
Thats my .02. G-
