      @Tony Davis yes. He has to have a crazy amount of confidence to do that, and maybe he does.

      @Formula DRIFT well only reason I could see wanting that is to take out the higher ranked comp for championship points reasons, none the less I agree with you and enjoy a good show no matter what

      @Tony Davis It's also seeding. Maybe Chelsea likes to chase first, but the only way to guarantee that is get 32nd and why would he want that? Why would he want to face all the top ranks first? Seeding is important to get the right kind of competition: 1/32, 2/31 and so on.

      @Formula DRIFT Qaulifying is basically secondary practice and I’m here for it, because it’s definitely needed.

      Whether or not drivers can strategize Qualifying (they could in the past as well), it's provably better for fans with no Qualifying points IF you think that more competitors (not less) that are competing for a championship is better than just 2 or 3. We discovered this after last year (kind of knew about it by looking at how much Qualifying points made up championships wins), but it became very apparent after last year with no Qual. 5 contenders going into Irwindale. Previously, no more than 2, maybe 3. We went back and looked at the data from the past 10 years of championships and sure enough, Qualifying either highly influenced or outright won championships. If you strip that out and also compress points (make more points for Top 32 finishes from previous years = new for 2021), then what you get is more contenders for the championship and that the contenders have to be good in tandem; meaning they win more battles. We've explained this a number of times, but I am not sure many people still understand the rationale. Doing what we are doing for Qualifying is making the championship better, closer and more focused on tandem.

      Odi was pushed out..one of the judges also said that he “assumed” odi was going off course already..no, to not go off course he had to decel a bit but vaughn was already coming in too hot. One can then also assume that if vaughn didn’t hit him that odi would’ve stayed on course and finished it. As for denofa, that last run was not even complete. Either youre gonna enforce the rules or not..get it together FD. You’re gonna lose all of your international drivers and you’ll end up with a national drift series. Or only accepting naive good international drivers until they realize how fucked up the judging is..dont forget what vaughn said, “judges cant read minds”..he’s right, they cant, thats why you need to establish good rules and stick by them. Dont try to assume what the drivers are or arent capable of, theyre pro drifters for a reason..because theyre pro, hence the pro license.

    As someone who is indifferent of Bakchis and Vaughn, I'm glad that the call heavily considered trying to complete the course. I think strategy around the rules takes away from the driving and I wouldn't want to see everyone start sandbagging when they get tapped in a close battle.

    It all makes now, Denofa had the strategy going on for him to qualify lower in order to chase. Qualifying first is irrelevant when it comes to points, eh?

      Strategy 👍 I think the qualifying run should maintain a minimum speed in each zone. With only one car on the track you can “pretty” drift for the judges.

    Official FD people who might be reading this..... thanks, these are all in good spirit, and I think most of these are for the best Ideas for next the next season of FD Rules 1. Judges judge separately during head to head with no interaction to keep down the usages of OMT, because it slows down bracketing and is terrible to watch live due to commercials and slowdowns, especially at the end of the night in the top 4. 2. Restate and fix the rules about going off track and clip/cone contact, maybe institute a strike system (3 times off track or hitting a clip is an incomplete) 3. Rewrite the rules on contact and fault, deceleration zones work, but maybe require both brake lights and handbrake lights to help distinguish where drivers are slowing down to help pin fault, (this would probably have helped with the bakchis and hull shenanigans tonight) Quality of life for streams 1. Do away with public chat..... it’s an abomination and only causes conflict. I hate using the word, but it’s beyond cringe. Maybe instead use it for time stamps of battles during the stream to be pinned.. this would be helpful for people looking for certain battles (ahem) and maybe abbreviate judge rulings and reasons with these results and time stamps.. this would cut down on having to mod chat and deal with the problems that come to that, and I’m sure many people wouldn’t complain 2. Higher quality cameras... I know you can’t really do anything about bad camera angles, but livestreams effectively look 720p which is hard to watch in a day where gopros can output 4K like it’s nothing 3. Update the UI and graphics for the livestreams, maybe also do a picture of the car with the drivers, or put car livery icons with the driver in their image/intro just to help make it more clear who’s driving what. This could go along with judging too maybe have some way to display the reasons for the decision Cars 1. It sounds dorky but make sure everyone’s under glow is actually working for night events. It’s cool, but when only two or three people have functioning underglow it kinda looks goofy 2. Standardize putting car numbers on the roof like the worthouse boys did Tracks 1. I know tire tread covers up the spray paint, and some tracks may not really allow spray painting on the track, but maybe you could do a better job of marking out the track for us, so we can see decel zones in red, or fill in areas like outside zones in yellow 2. Change the layout on the STL track to the original... do we need another bank track? And the past 2 years have had terrible slow points that cause wrecks 3. Maybe setup and televise some grassroots events at smaller tracks?
