So, after glancing through the lists of cars that've been classified in that category, I only have one question:
How is a Mustang with stripes, springs, and two 4.0 badges considered
"Lightly Modified"? After looking through the other cars to start
faceoffs with, I realized that most of them have quite a bit more money
put into them than I have done to Either of my cars.
The 91 is classified as stock. Why? Because it only has one
performance mod: My Exhaust. But if I list that I have a
new deck, a little tree air freshener, a dogtag, and some bumper
decals, I'm afraid now that I'll get thrown into the Lightly Modified
class, along with my 06.
I find it hard to see how a Mustang which has no "performance" parts on
it aside from lowering springs [..wooo..] can be classified along with
members such as these:
Those are just a few of the cars that make me look at the mod
list and go "WTF. How can I face off against THAT?!" They are all
restored, worked on, rebuilt, and beautiful cars with many mods.
I was hoping that maybe a new judge, or classifier, whoever, would see
that obviously my car has absolutely NO merit in that class.
But enough bitching: A Solution.
I know Tim has been thinking of different ways to improve this
classification thing. I don't know if this has been mentioned, but have
we thought of a point system?
Think about it. Let's say to be classified in "Stock", your "mod points" need to be under.. 5,000. So therefore:
Then, when you wish to be classified, a checklist could be made and you
could simply click which mods you have on your vehicle. This
would automatically add it up for you, and tell you what your potential
class would be. But of course, to discourage all those who claim
to have mods, yet no proof [Didn't that just happen..? Hm.] your
checklist must be approved by one of those Anonymous DR. Evil judges.
