Seriously though if DJR/TP were able to win last years championship with inferior aero what did people honestly think would happen when they got equal aero with the stang, let alone the fact that holden teams haven't yet adapted to the linear spring set-up?

It's kinda funny that the Ford teams complained so bitterly about the ZB because they won out of the box, but the cars were equally down in the 20s like normal. And Red Bull were winning, like normal.

Adelaide however we saw a virtual Mustang lockout, with drivers leaping from the 20s into the top 6.

That is notable much more so than the ZB that Ryan Story was so vocal about.

Nobody ever builds a car to be slower than the old one, and Penske no doubt lent resources to the Mustang that PRA never has with the FG-X.

Will be interesting to see how this develops across multiple circuit types. There is no doubt all the Mustang pilots had speed to burn and really didn't pay for the mistakes they made at all.

The ZB didn't have it all it's own way after Adelaide and Scott went on to win the championship.

I hear you saying it, but I don't know if you really mean it.

to be honest mate, the days of Holden V Ford died years ago. if the racing is good I dont really give a hoot who wins. Dont get mr wrong Im red through and through but who wants to watch the same team win week in week out as HRT or 888 did or even DJR more recently.

If the racings good, bring it on.

You’re making the incorrect assumption that their aero last year was worse than the Commodore. At most of the high aero circuits Ford were as strong if not stronger.

Don't forget apart from the whining about composite panels you also had direct accusations from Ford teams about illegal boot lids and lots of other stuff that made the ZB unbeatable, all of which turned out to be rubbish.

Obviously cheating.

Supercars themselves extensively parity tested the Mustang, subsequently giving it (in their expert engineering opinion) the ok to race.

If it's passed Supercars rigorous runway evaluation (a gold standard in aerodynamic testing), then you know something foul MUST be afoot!!!
