Date: Thursday, November 27, 2008, 3:30 PMpeople only get excessive if they think they can get away with it....
dutch holland is a good example..it was a mad house last yr...
if you have a simple rule like welded stock bumpers, with stock
brackets,then thats that...being consistant help everyone...red bluff
and yuba have descent, stock rules...and guess what everyone knows
come stock..or thell tell ya sorry..NO go!!and they have the balls to
cut after the main..do they miss some?yes..but they are consistant
hardnosers will rule with rules like turlock..they dont need a front
bumper...and if you do run one, youd better be preped to loose it the
first, if not the 2nd night..tearing up 1500.00 cars in 1 run is not
for the normal derby guys...$$$$$ $$
i can understand why stock rules like turlock come about.. and its
good for the sport that they flourish..with cars and attendance..

there, but there are more important things in life. If Carl will have
me, I'll be back next year with two frame cameras. I dont agree with
> You have to run what comes on the car. Welding them, Ok. But as you
and I know, people get excessive, just to push the issue. You push in
the 5's and weld them, weld brackets (stock) on the frame and to
brackets to bumper. Thats it. NO making brackets or chevy brackets on
a lincoln and so on. You and I both know why we put chevy rear
brackets on the front of the lincolns. Next year at Colusa, will be
no, bracket modification, either you bend it or take it off. The lins
are soft in the front if you dont weld/piece or modify a chevy bumper
> At Colusa, our scorer only watch one car and score that car. Each
car in the arena has a scorer. These people get specnial seating and
know a little about derbing, but like doing it. It seemed to work out
as far as we were conserned.

Subject: Re: [west_coast_derby_gallery] Re: Turlock Derbyhow do you know you were first in points? I don't know who is ahead till they add up. those heats usually run 7-8 mins. 4-5 mins seems a long time. Maybe that was good. You still transfered, only $75 less than winning, and didn't tear the car up so bad for the main.
