I think it's inevitable. The pressure is on to make things greener and with the drop in pollution, as the only positive to come out of the coronavirus crisis, the pressure will be even greater.

Well it will definitely sound better, The Captain will make sure of that. And off the shelf hybrid is purely to sell it to car companies. No one will care if it even works, just slap the stickers on and go.

The ICE in the IndyCar package is a 2.4L twin turbo V6 as opposed to F1's 1.6L single turbo V6. I'm sure that will make a difference.

As was said at the end of the roadsters, the classic Offys and many other classics. That's why it's still around, no one wants to watch a 500 that takes 8 hours plus any longer and haven't in a long time.

Indycar has adapted to modern times and still manages to produce great racing. That's what I enjoy about it

I'm not too sure what you mean by, IndyCar has adapted to modern times?

I wish they switched to V8 engines. I mean, the 1975 Ferrari Dino 308 GT4 had a 2.0L.

The 2.65L V8 turbo engine they used in the CART era was superb and what a sound it made.

There's been very little technological development because it's a spec series. There is no one to challenge Dallara. If chassis manufacturing was opened up, then we might see some new developments. Recently, their was a brief period of technological development, if it can be called that, when Chevy and Honda developed their own aero-kits but that was short lived.

I do miss the chassis competition, even if it was bought off the shelf rather than built from scratch. At least we have engine competition

Penske designed their own chassis. Their last was the PC 27B. They eventually succumbed to Reynard, though the Reynard 2Ki and 01i chassis incorporated the sidepods from the PC 27B, earning it the nickname Reynkse. All American Racers also produced their Eagle chassis, the 987 and 997 for the 1998 and '99 seasons. It was AAR who brought Toyota in.
