Yeah, I totally thought y'all were talking about the mirrors/endplates.

Considering there hasn't been a totally free number plate color in any class in US sportscar racing since I can remember.

If you're gonna allow any color to be used for the number plate, then just go back to stylized numbers like Grand-Am had and IMSA used to have until the ALMS days.

And how often does a conversation change, drastically, if not totally, in the middle of a thread/page/conversation?

Well, I've been watching old ALMS races before the color coded numbers/number plates/leader lights system. Most of the numbers on most of the cars weren't really stylized (seemed to be more of a team thing than a class thing). They were usually simple fonts and were usually black or very dark blue.

Trivia time: And it should be noted that the original IMSA color codes for numbers/leader lights was backgrounds of white (LMP900), orange (LMP675), yellow (GTS/GT1) and green (GT/GT2). Of course, that changed to numbers instead of backgrounds, with colors of red (LMP900/LMP1), blue (LMP675/LMP2), green (GTS/GT1) and orange (GT/GT2).

This of course corresponds to LMP1, LMP2, GTE-Pro and GTE-Am under current ACO regs, and DPI/LMP2, LMPC, GTLM and GTD under current IMSA rules.

And as LMP1 won't likely feature in IMSA's plans (not unless they want to speed DPIs up to LMP1 privateer levels), I don't see the problem. LMPC won't be a class next year, so that's less confusion (and let's face it, LMPC was a dying class anyways in IMSA for the Weathertech races).

The only issue I have with the current IMSA leader lights system is that it more often than not shows overall position. Unless a class other than DPI/LMP2 is racing for the overall podium or lead, I'd rather see the class position.

IMSA leader lights show class position, not overall.

Every race I've been to since the merger has showed that as well, the entire time during Q and race.

Looks like it. And in the write up they say that they had to stop during the eclipse because it got a little dark.

Looks like the same car from the Paul Ricard video a couple of weeks ago, minus the camo ...

Bare carbon does not look good with that front end.

Can't wait to see the progress on this. I know right now they are just testing updates and such, but I hope they get a chance to do some endurance testing before Daytona.

Is that in the free area for DPis or will that need ACO homologation as well?

Pretty sure that's free area, or it wouldn't be happening. Even if it wasn't IMSA likely wouldn't care since engine reliability seems to be the one area they're not wanting to restrict development of.

Still running the draggy Riley-based aero. They're probably not worried so much about aero right now I presume, just getting the mechanicals in order.

Here's another angle of the intake without the engine cover on
