"Evolution rather than revolution"

They said that about the Car Of The Future/Next Generation/Car Of The Today platform
They also said that about the Gen2 platform
They now say the same thing about Gen3

Can we please get a new record and DJ?

It's funny that they're talking about Gen3 as Gen2 almost didn't happen. The first truly Gen2 car will be ZB with V6 TT under the bonnet.

Really?

Hybrid technology in racing is 100% only to promote manufacturers greenness, I can only see this putting costs up for no impact on the show.

I don't believe he was referring to what we call hybrid energy vehicles.

More or less the way in which they're asperated.

He was talking in the biological sense.

I believe you are both wrong:

It is a view echoed by Shell V-Power Racing managing director Ryan Story although he feels there is always room for improvement and the ability to embrace new technology.

The Penske run team operates without a manufacturer alliance, and while it continues to seek a partner, Story reckons the category can survive without true manufacturer teams.

“I think there are things to optimise the rule set that we are under now and there are other technologies that we should look to embrace in the future,” Story told Speedcafe.com.

“Triple Eight and General Motors are obviously investigating the V6 twin-turbo, and maybe there is something we could look at from hybridising our existing drivetrain.

“There are a number of technologies we can look to incorporate if we are thinking more about market relevance without jeopardising the strength of our existing platform.

Something to look forward to, going from roaring V8's to the tyre squeal of hybrids. Not to mention short races or 30 minute pitstops to recharge batteries, just saying.

Ok, so the word hybrid only refers to EV. Got it.

Unfortunately, electric vehicles is the way of car industry in not a distant future. I can't see Supercars surviving relying on a few year old V8 Falcons and 20 V6 Holdens. I think it's time for bigger changes if Supercars is going to survive.

Or maybe we will have SuperHolden Cup, a perfect series for Dane, Dutton and all these arrogant guys wanting to boost their egos.

I want to see what happens when someone wants to run a different motor to everyone else.

Gotta love how the guys who have redefined what success means in Supercars are perceived as arrogant. Arrogant means you think you are that good but you are not.

I think they've earned the right to be a touch arrogant.

You'd want to use a dc motor with 100% torque at 0 RPM, then to limit max power you'd install the mother of all rheostats for easy parity power adjustment at the twist of a dial.
