So a lot of the focus has been on the Mustang this year, with many saying it is too fast! However, I am interested in thoughts on T8 RBHRT and their performance in 2019?

Do people believe they are at the usual standard? Have they maximised their cars in terms of speed and reliability?

Do you think they have room to lift their performance and by how much as the season goes on?

Should we be judging parity in terms of race performance if they are not at the usual standard? Is it sporting and fair to do so?

Just drop early.

Everyone has a poor season here and there. Gizzy is still the highest place ZB so nothing to worry about really.

Hasnt stopped the Supercars Technical Parity Team from handicapping the Mustang has it?

Burgess and Little are the biggest fools in motor racing In this country, they have been conned, makes me wonder if they will admit that they have ****ed up!

I think the only difference is just that - the walk down pitlane.

The lack of performance from Triple Eight is more noticeable given the fact that they have dropped back to two cars. At least when they ran three cars over the past handful of years, if one was a dud, there were at least two to bring back a decent result. With the two car outfit, if ones a dud, they only have one car to bring home a decent result.

Wrong thread, Zaccy boy.

So the experts on here know more about the ZBs aero advantage at high speed than the guys who are driving it? It was the hottedt topic at SP last week for ****sake!
Holden sacrificed ultimate cornering speed for a slippery top end, it's how they did the aero! Too smart for their own good!

Big topic this morning is the single linear spring and the effect it is having on some team's, this one especially!
JW was 1.2 seconds slower in the race yesterday than in last year's race, that's not aero, that hasn't changed, it's mechanical grip, it's the springs!

The ZB is faster in a straight line and slower in corners -- Holden's own choice to homologate a lower drag, lower downforce aero kit.

You can't have it all! The Mustang and Altima lose a lot in a straight line, conversely Commodore loses in long, fast corners.

On top of that 888 are clearly doing a very, very poor job, with poor pace and basic mistakes.



The Ford & Nissan homologation teams signed off on all the cars having equal drag. How does that result in the zb having lower drag?

This is bull****, the ZB has an agreed by everyone, high speed aero advantage, yet on a high speed circuit it doesnt work! The arse ends of the 888 cars looked like they had zero control, shocks and wing!

Numbers tell the truth on who has what advantage and you my friend are way off.

I know at least on Holden team is using the next few rounds as a testing and apparently most are already looking to next year and the new car design
