    Here's an interesting poll i started a while back concerning bringing hydrodrags to the mud bug event. We typically draw 150+ skis to the event but despite that amount only 30 people voted that they would actually participate.

    I think you should start a poll on why people don't want to compete.

    and lets find out their reasons why they don't compete.

    If we find out why people aren't signing up to compete maybe someone can come up with a plan to make this work.

    I think it has to do with classes and breakdown. People who come to Mudbug either are there to cruise, or bring their A-game to show what they got. I for one would know my father and I would love to drag, but getting people in a specific classes is tough, just like when we would define classes for the radar runs...People would want the skis to be close in finish, not a landslide arse-whooping.

    How about a small bouy course, simple figure 8. Running start from the center, do the 2 laps of the figure 8, done. We did that and the FRS rallys years ago and some people who won were on less powerful machines. Thats where the ski of ski control comes in

    ECONOMY people. Folks want to have fun but if they dont have an equal chance of AT LEAST being competitive in their respective class, no matter what mods they have or have not done, they are not going to drop the coin to go racing. They are going to stay home and take the kids to Chucky Cheeze. You can do all the polls you want, until the economy improves its pointless. Sure, someone that has been less effected by these times will buy this launch pad and put on a race. But if the classes are the same, so will the turn out.

    Drag racing on the west coast.

    My first drag race is this week. If I like it, I'll do it next year. I think we will do the 5 next year up and down the coast. However, it's only 2 of us committed at this time. You have to start somewhere, and with the regulars that run this series, I think Joe said there was 5-10 that possibly run. I bet we double that number in one year out west, in a recession.

    MORE IMPORTANTLY: This is bracket racing out west. My 90mph ski won't mean anything if I can't leave the gate correctly (red light,) and NOT break-out (go quicker than my ET.) The world champ on her 50mph GTI has the advantage due to experience and being able to leave the hole consistantly. As time goes on, I believe we will see enough folks doing this out west that they will be able to classify us based upon ET to prevent us fast folks from cherry picking the 50mph skis...

    If you folks would JUST DO TIME CLASSES you would get turnout.

    Consider somthing like this:
    10sec 1/8 mile
    09sec 1/8 mile
    08sec 1/8 mile
    07sec 1/8 mile
    06sec 1/8 mile
    05sec 1/8 mile
    unlimited.

    -The simple rule is that if you break out of your time then you LOSE. If you want to run UNLIMITED, then have fun with it.
    -Force all skis to be checked for rider safety equipment but leave that worthless fuggin rulebook in the garbage pile where it belongs.

    DO it on ET times, or continue to fail, fail, fail. You are going to need some time keeping equipment or it's really no different than a bunch of folks playing with their modified houseboat gate.
