Because Supercars is corrupt and they do this **** purely to dick Ford team's over! If OPELdoress are not winning, it's the cars fault, not the teams who run them, if Ford wins, it's the cars fault, not the fact that the Holden team's are mostly duds! They have had massive advantage for 25 years and still get beaten by better run Ford teams!

Colorado, the D-max that John West rejects!

Perhaps they were gathering a lot of comparitive measurements and lacked some knowledge in the best application of these comparisons.

This year they suddenly have a new brains trust that have operated at the highest level of Supercars and know a lot of the tricks and are re-interpreting the recorded data, plus additional data they are gathering.

All indications are that there will be more to come and not just Aero and not just the Mustangs.

I thing any further changes needs to happen in off season. Some fans can't take anymore adjustments mid session. For the good of the sport, just leave them alone for now.. They have fixed CoG & they have had a go at aero. Supercars needs to get their own **** together & look at it properly in-between 2019 & 2020 seasons.

Bring it on, I say. Maybe if they screw Ford over badly enough, Ford will wake up and get out.

With the way DJRTP have changed Supercars into almost NASCAR, why donít the series have the same bodyshells with stick on headlights?

Aero parity fixed

The change from touring cars to sports sedans happened long before Penske had any involvement. It was your heros Roland and Skaifey who masterminded that.5
