I don't understand why some ppl just will not move over I mean your getting lapped! if a faster car catches me I have no problem letting them pass. Ppl want to race anyone I guess doesn't matter if there getting lapped or not they just do not want to get passed.
Lol if ppl are that afraid of getting nurfed either drive faster or move over its really pretty simple
Just curious if you have raced limited class @10 shot ? With smaller tires and small HP you can't just get in and out of two track. I have run in a handful of different classes and we will always move but at the same time we are going to move when we have a spot we can. Following a 11 car up a sandy section into a mountain pass you are not going to get them to pull over and stop at a hole in the bushes because they will not get going again killing their race. Or deep two track that they will high center over or have to thread the needle to not put it on its side. You have to give these guys some grace in where they can move and remember even if they are a lot slower they could be the leader or chasing the leader in their class. 95% of them want to get out of your way as soon as they can. But like every class there are the 5% that don't care about anything but themselves.
we had to run one in our old 9 car but there was not a no nerfing rule, the light was to tell others we were slower and the closing rate was huge.
as far as i know (unless otherwise stated at a drivers meeting )and i thought this was common knowledge ,the only class that cannot be nurffed is class 11
but i guess common knowledge is not so common any more
I think class 9 had a no nurf at one point but then again I could easily be mistaken. The problem is that it could be common knowledge but when someone goes aginst that how can they be penalized when it is not spelled out in the rule book as to what they did wrong?
Why is this not a thing? I can see why running one would be an advantage because people wont nerf you. Wait..... Ok, they might not nerf you? They probably wont? Whatever...
I would be pissed it I was riding the ass of someone who wouldnt move over only to find out later that they were actually nerf legal but identifying as off limits to nerfs.
[ THREAD HIJACK- HOW / WHEN /BY WHO WAS THE TERM NERF COINED ?}
I think this is one of the biggest things because a lot of racers see the blue/green and give that car more grace when it can get out of the way knowing they have a lot of vehicle limitations. So then when it is a car that is not the case it makes them second guess giving that same grace next time they come up on a car with the light. Example a 4 banger 7s vs a v8 1450. Both running the same rear green light. And from the rear, in the dust, bouncing around, how quickly can you tell the difference between the two trucks?
IMO blue lights are 11s, plus vintage and mil
spec classes in orgs that have those classes. Those should be completely off limits for nerfing as far as I’m concerned.
I get the "for closing speed" thing also. But what about blue/green for slow cars and a strobing one for no nerfing cars?
Everyone seems to have forgotten why Jeepspeeds originally needed blue lights. The Cherokees are Unibody station wagons and regardless how well you build the bumpers a good whack can permanently fold up the chassis like a piece of aluminum foil that can never be straightened out. Not so with the full framed wranglers and trucks that are now allowed in the class.
Exactly. And how many stock class SUVs use to run?
Who do you speak to? The rule book in which sanction you are racing in. Snore, Score, Norra... That is your first stop to see what their rules are. Blue light (as I understand) identifies you as having an Unprotected rear end vs. those that have a caged rear end. If someone nurfs you, and they say they did not know,,,well, they're just playing dumb on you as they look at your destroyed engine that had no cage protection. As far as sharing,,,attend your Driver's meeting, raise you hand, stand up and preach it! "I have NO CAGE protecting my engine!! Don't Nurf Me!!" But, you better have a good co-driver watching your six, and when someone comes from behind, get the hek out of the way ASAP.
Maybe this whole conversation is incorrect. I just went through SCORE, SNORE, MORE, BITD, and Mint 400 rule books.
Mint mentions the blue light (if your class req it) but not what it is for and then in the class 11 rules it doesn't say that you need one.
SCORE mentions the blue light and what classes need it but not why
SNORE, MORE, BITD mention the blue/green light and what classes need it and that it is for slower cars.
None of the rule books say ANY class is off limits to nurfing. I guess that was dropped from all rulebooks for all classes at some point over the years. So without it being in the rule book, if someone does bump a class 11 how would they get penalized? What rule would be used as the basis of the infraction?
