peckstar has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!

not disagreeing with you on this

however, more recent to this, is that was no longer the case and the car had got away from Frosty as it became more tuned for Chaz, and to a lesser extent Cam, However the addition of J Bright is now giving some more Frosty focused information which is why we are starting to see Frosty move forward again as Frosty and Bright like some similar stuff in the car

Evidenced by PRA's fall away after Chaz' accident in '15

Winterbottom was very lucky to hang onto that championship.

Disagree. He won by 238 points, Winterbottom and PRA knew they should take less risks to claim the title.

Do PRA & DJRTP still have a technical / parts relationship? Wondering if the PRA resurgence and DJRTP rise is coincidence or collaboration?

Sure, he was still banking points but on the subject of form, either Triple Eight car outscored him considerably, post-Bathurst (Mostert's demise).

Mostert and De Borre play a big role in that teams success I think. Last year De Borre was not there, no success for Chaz, as a result no success for anyone else. Frosty was working with Chaz's set ups in 2015 and is again this year, we see the pace back and fighting. Last year could be said to be no funding, yet if it was the case we wouldn't see them at the front this year you would think, they are battling DJRTP and T8

Seems unlikely that they collaborate anymore. I imagine now DJRTP have the experience (not to mention the resources) to build all their own stuff (e.g., front subframe etc).

The 2 teams have been working together towards the Mustang option but doubt there's much other info sharing going on.

PRA are running the DJRTP (But what about Betty's E-Cell!?!?) floor insert, if that counts for anything.

They have few options left, they can't flounder around the pack with LDM. I'd say by this stage it's pretty clear their developed package contains flaws, either with the designs themselves or with the understanding of how to make them work.
