Neither.

Teams can still produce their own chassis, and pin the new '18-spec Commodore Triple Eight-developed bodywork to it.

They're sticking with the V8 in 2018, from what's been reported.

Too much money down the toilet, to develop anything else.

Nissan extended through to the end of 2018, expect Altimas for both years. 2019 may end up in a platform and power source rethink if they stay in.

I worry about 'parity' in post race interviews if Nissan continue with the V8 and others move to turbocharged powerplants.

Reckon the Nissan might get some mid-corner understeer?

He doesn't own the IP to the chassis design. Supercars does.

The bare kit of tubes can come from Pace pre-cut... all the rest is likely to be, for Holden teams, an 888-designed & homologated part..

It is more than likely that prospective Holden teams in the Next Gen world will be encouraged to buy turn key cars from 888..

Having said that, they had better have an order placed soon for next year.. deposits paid & all that

I'm not buying any of these conspiracy theories.

People bought 888 FG and 888 COTF because they are the best mouse traps with the best support.

If it was your money would you buy a car from GRM, WP or PRA?

Maybe buy the 888 car and re-skin it as a Ford

I'm bias, so I'd be buying a GRM chassis. I think we've seen the potential of a GRM chassis over the years and what it can do in the right hands...

Meh you can be biased but I suspect Scotty Mac can on occasion make anything look good.

Robert Dahlgren and Alex Premat are not exactly **** drivers and look at their results!
