I think they should take their time to get ready for the car, otherwise It's gonna have a lot of problem like Yok BD....

Hahaha juz kiddin, the BD is a great car too, my friend ran his very very well on its maiden run in a race and did better than his previous car.

I would have thought the first parts to break on the BD were the very thin bulkhead CF braces at the front and rear stabilizers.. they are sooo scarily thin.

No, no.
It might cost more, but never too much! Porsche quality is a bit more, but during a season, it will be much, much cheeper.

Those aren't bulkhead stabilizers they are there for the sway bars so you can screw down the tention on the bars. The bulkhead stabilizers are the shocktowers and those are plenty thick...Just want to clear things up.
BD rocks although it will be nice to see what the cyclone will do.
I am sure it will be another great car...
right now there isn't a new car out there that isn't capable of winning....Nice change if you ask me...It forces the drivers to just get better. Not limited to a bad car.
Just my $0.02
