Compare that to how badly some teams were out in the wilderness with their self-built cars in the BTC-T and S2000 era. Back then, you basically needed a crack outfit like 888, RLM or Dynamics to come up with a properly competitive car, whereas now even small teams like Cicely can "develop" a car on their own.
I understand the reasoning and the logic behind that premise, but how is it then with TCR, small teams can design and develop suspension layouts without using a spec subframe? To my knowledge, TCR doesn’t use them?
