Wonder if they have been able to re-uniform the squad in the short timeframe?

The chassis design, as in the roll cage, is fixed under car of the future. Everything else can be unbolted (or spot welds unpicked) and changed as required. Old chassis are routinely stripped back to the bare spaceframe and rebuilt.

There is no advantage to having a new chassis, not like the old days where there was scope for developments and refinements with a new chassis build. Since the spaceframe design is fixed, it would be equivalent to strip and rebuild a well raced chassis with your latest running gear.

Apparently it was known for a while Mega were slow (or non) payers before WAU took them on/poached them.

So ostensibly WAU should have had a contingency plan in place.

No, they're not prone to cracking or tweaking at all...

There are a couple that have had some big enough hits to need bars replaced... surely have fallen out of perfect alignment...

Surprised they're not making Scotty race without a rear wing given his level of dominance lately. Really cutting that mustard nicely. Needs to go have a go at NASCAR.

Looks like Tickford have early pace (waiting for the tinfoil wearing keyboard warriors slamming both the 'Stang and the new Commodore areo) and Scotty Mac has had some dramas with his Mustang. Shall be interesting later on today.

When 888 allows a wheel to fall off, and then successfully lobbies for subsequent Opel aero revisions/nobbling of the Mustang; you know something is not quite right with the series.

Even more bizarre was the way it went in and back out again causing mayhem!

Then the one in the muscle cars to ensure it finished under yellow.
