Well you know it's basically the old hated DP concept but with LMP2 cars. "DPG4". IDK why everyone loves it, I really don't. I mean yes they're faster and better looking and have modern components in them now, but that's about it.

Ganassi run in Grand-Am for years with DPs and that's about as prestige-level team as Penske and Joest right? It's gotta to be not that much higher cost with these even if they're not tube frame anymore

Performance balancing and spec vehicles ensure easiness for everyone around. Probably the biggest reason OEMs throw around ANY money in the first place is because
A) IMSA/NASCAR demand it in order to get the rebranded title (remember when Onroak was -demanded- to do more "Nissany things" to their body when it was clear it was basically just the barebody Oak chassis)
B) More OEM money into the series, the better chances of being friends with the BoP committee
