Does anyone reckon they should copy the next gen NASCAR and stick on a spoiler?
We’d just have what we have now. NASCAR took a lot of guide for next gen from a current supercar

Yeah I can understand that. I'm just fed up Supercars need to get the ball rolling. NASCAR is already hyping it up it's sh*tting me to tears.

Is that bit of sheet on the roll hoop there for bracing or is that the new firewall?

Pace chassis

So nearing the end of may and they are about 10% into the build and other then a few pretty drawings 0% into the aero and design?

You'd hope that the aero is all in CAD and CFD programs, I'd almost assure you 888 would have it going like they did with Wirth for the ZB. They are gun-hoe aiming at getting this Camaro out.
I'd also assume DJR and Ford Performance would be doing the same?

Driveline is the worry, have they even announced the regs?

Would think they would just carry over the existing driveline.

The Xtrac transaxles are paddle shift and hybrid ready.

The biggest thing is the engines. I don't think they've done parity testing on those, or even which ones they're based around. Ford could use the 5.2L that's found in the Mustang GT4, and GM have a race ready 5.5L that's strapped in the back of their Cadillac DPi cars and the Corvette C8R.

Good question, it certainly is very different.

It would remove any viewing out the rear by the looks.

This article shows both chassis and there seems to be a few differences in bar work.

There appears to be an extra diagonal brace across the rear window in the 888 car, but it may just be the angles.

Clearly the 888 chassis is not yet completed with the rear clip.

Will teams be allowed to use the standard approved chassis, but add some additional bracing and safety barwork??

I think the only differences can be the barwork to hold panels on.

The Triple Eight one is an older photo from before a few of the specs were refined, as explained here:

Oops. I replied to the wrong post.

There was discussions about engines. Links refer to that
