Re: [Jiggs] Does anyone like the new rules?

So why not just have the VE rule rather than the drag on entry?

I dunno. I didn't write the rules, and had nothing whatsoever to do with the process. I suspect though that the answer lies in my response to the 2nd part of your statement below.

why in the same stroke reduce safety with the drag?

Honestly, after throwing myself into distance for the last 2 days. I don't believe it does reduce safety in any way. In fact, I find myself forced to make a smoother more controller approach than when I power down on the gate.

Now, as far as I know speed rules are the same as they used to be (I *think* the new ones were rejected) so us competitors will still have plenty of opportunity to bomb at the gates Smile
