bloggs should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
The article says that "The latest tweaks sees all the ballast removed from Holden while 9kg of ballast will be removed from the roof and composite parts will be replaced by steel roof beams in the Mustang." Is this just poor writing or what?

If this Is true, the Mustang Is still being penalized.

w"ith the 6.8kg of ballast removed from the roof of the Commodore and nine of the 28kg taken away from the Mustang.

The Mustang will run steel beams in place of the 9kg of removed ballast."

6.8 removed from commo

9 removed from the funny car

9 put back in a different (lower) spot on funny car

where did your last quote come from? I've not read that anywhere and it wouldn't make sense if there is no cog tweak taking place between the different cars as stated in the supercars article.

The ZB loses 6.8,the mustang loses 9 with the remaining weight converted into steel in the roof and maintains the current CoG parity between makes.

To quote the supercars article:

“The repositioning maintains the current CoG balance between all makes and has an equal effect on performance for all.”

Definitely some poor writing involved, almost implies there WAS a CoG differential change... actually, I'm still not sure...

Is there a Supercars press/technical release? Would be much clearer and more technical than the above rubbish

The above is just a regurgitation of a press release anyway.

Once again Supercars dont have the ability (or perhaps the want) to communicate to the paying public any changes being undertaken. Was Mr Fogarty right in AA, are Supercars treating their fans like mushrooms?

But the changes have been communicated - Ballast location is being tidied up on all 3 models in use based on extensive CAD work, CoG will be lowered on all three models as a result of tidying up the ballast and CoG parity is maintained across all three models.

The aero changes before Darwin certainly weren't communicated, some have suggested deliberately.

They clearly were communicated to the teams, the people with by far the biggest stake in the game but it seems that the public complaining about no release on that update has probably triggered this update being communicated.

So this isn't a "once again" situation as your post claimed, this is the reverse - a change being communicated.

To keep the punters informed I'd suggest an on-screen graphic after the starting grid stating in broad terms any parity adjustment.

Broad terms?
I want details!
I hope this graphic is animated.

Animated graphic could be funky - as this is a Mustang thread - maybe the graphic for the Mustang could be a galloping horse with a fire blasting from its rear end - size of the flame indicating the size of any parity adjustment.

Holden could be how much its "holdin' on" by, not sure about the Nissan.

The comments read as expected:

Other responses he gave people:
"This is parity and is achieved in a scientific and safe manner. We are happy with the outcome."
"It's all about matching Z heights. It's a scientific process and the outcome is a fair one."
"it's all about safely ensuring that the centre of gravity is equalized across the three makes. This is a really good thing taking the lead from the roof. Supercars have done a great job with this. We still need to meet minimum weight of 1395kg."
