When I was 15, before I had my driver's license, I was racing a desert buggy in the 2-1600 class in the SCORE series in Baja. you can definitely drag the brakes going off lips and jumps, but not as efficiently as you can on a bike. And just like in motocross or supercross racing, when you're in the air you're not moving forward or going fast. You want to get that thing back down on the ground and on the power. Scrubbing's definitely an advantage dirt bikes have over trucks.I still play ride and pull out my dirt bike and go hit Glamis, but unfortunately not as much as I'd like to and I don't get as gnarly as I used to. I just can't take the chance of taking myself out of an event or missing multiple events because of the level of corporate sponsorship commitments we have.Passing in a truck, you definitely have the advantage and the security of a cage. On a bike you might be a little more hesitant cutting somebody down low or doing a block pass and risk getting tangled up, but with trucks almost anything goes out there and you can slam 'em pretty hard. Short-course racing has been described before as like a UFC fight. You see fenders flying and lots of banging. Nobody's afraid to rub and that includes going off lips of jumps, so it gets pretty intense sometimes. Whereas on a dirt bike you're not bumping and banging as hard as you do in the truck.
