Yes and NO. In a way the reduced aero is goofy but on the other hand the body work is clean and smooth. I like the wide front wings but the rear wing is alil odd. Looking at the interim cars during testing i adjusted to it.

Honestly these cars are supposedly gonna bring way more action so.......


Here's to the OWG (Overtaking Working Group) !!! LOL.... that really exists......

It is the rear wing that really kills it for me. The driver adjustable front wing "flaps" are cool, as is the return of slicks. I guess I'll wait until the first weekend to pass judgment.

I want to see what Mecca and the others come up with.

The high narrow rear wing is a bit strange but you will get used to it. These are like modern cars from the late 80's and early 90's.

It's Macca BTW........

I suppose I will get used to it, but I'm still not happy about it.

Ok guys I'm leaning toward Winter Heat being Sat Jan 31st

We can make that whole weekend awesome. We can do a club race Friday start around 7pm and do 2 rounds and mains.

Saturday we can have the big event.

Sunday we can have another club race be done and home way before kickoff.

Any useful comments!!!!

Friday considering it's only 2 rounds maybe like 2nd class free ? this way maybe we can all warm up our 4wd's,slash's, and big tire buggy's ?
