    Even before ZB introduced carbon panels VF had introduced aluminium bonnet and bootlid while the FG/FGX was using steel as they had to match the material of the "donor" vehicle at the time.

    Carbon...

    Maybe Roland should use some of the redundant springs he has at the T8 workshop and chop them up and use the pieces to make a rattle to keep his drivers happy until he has found some new loopholes...

    There seems to be a desperation to justify that because he has performed well in other echelons of motorsport that it is just a matter of time before he is the next Whincup or McLaughlin.

    Way to show prospective manufacturers how you'll be welcomed if you do a good job and hit the ground running!

    No murmurings from the twitterverse, instagram or any of the other channels the discontented bunch have been utilising to fan the flames. Not yet anyhow.

    DJR fans have definately appeared out of the woodwork over the last few seasons, not all appreciate the irony of pointing the finger at other teams about being a shambles considering the depths the...

    You mean bluewash, right?

    T8 are finding their feet. Whincup had pace, SVG had bad luck and was unable to show his pace.

    Symmons is a T8 track, they'll be in the mix
  8. Sticky: Probably an overlooked factor in all of this is...

    Probably an overlooked factor in all of this is that the cameras were all still focussed on the f1 telecast. Usually the tv footage would obviously be focussed on the Supercars so the teams would me...

    Time to use the weight advantage to beef up the rear suspension arms.

    Ford vs Ford interference has taken the foot off Rolands throat, just as his politicking starts to gain traction.

    DJR Team Penske was asked to alter its exhaust system by Supercars heading into this weekend's Albert Park round, according to the team.

    I bet all sorts of games are being played in transporters over the remainder of the weekend. 2 days to redistribute as many precious grams of weight as possible.

    If I'm any team on pit lane...
  13. Sticky: How does measuring CofG go from being too hard...

    How does measuring CofG go from being too hard and too expensive to something able to be done on Monday at a Melbourne based team's workshop in the space of a few days?

    Sounds like a ham fisted...

    Was Sandown last year a race, how about Tailem Bend, or Adelaide?

    T8 are getting some of their own back. The longest single team domination of the ATCC is faltering, but I doubt it's over just...

    I guess Ford's will they/won't they approach to racing post Falcon has actually played a bit into our hands. Holden and Roland had to lead with the first punch on ZB not really knowing what type of...

    Ballast rules spelled out as below. Basically put it in the cockpit unless you have to use it to make one of the other components with prescribed weight limits meet those limits and then only add...

    Exactly why I hold the package in such high regard. It is truly factory spec. Didn't roll off the line at Broadmeadows, but it may as well have.
  18. Sticky: I believe the nose droop was allowed as a trade...

    I believe the nose droop was allowed as a trade off for the roof stretch. Taller roof added drag, lower nose traded some of the drag back. ZB didn't need one, so wasn't granted the other.

    We've already got min front and rear axle weights and even weights that apply to front and rear bumpers, set places for additional ballast, engine componentry have weight specs that apply too. The...

    Must be about due for a meet to solve all the world's problems pre Symmons sometime?

    The ZB held all kinds of advantages over the FGX, some quantifiable - panel weights, some known - being a design that was far newer than the Falcon that was developed circa 2008, some unquantifiable...
  22. Sticky: If everything is even as they say numbers wise,...

    If everything is even as they say numbers wise, then it's down to springs. The balance of power can shift so much through such a long season that you can't afford to rest on any laurels.

    Run as hard and fast as you can, make hay while the sun shines and accumulate every point you can while the other guys are on the back foot. You never know when the status quo will shift and the...

    Just finished reading road to redemption. Really good read and quite frank when it comes to discussing things like the Newcastle 17 pit lane penalty for speeding and SVG's parking problems in NZ....
