question

This is something that has bothered me for a while. When will ford get the AUII racecar? I've spoken to someother people who have said the AUII is allready here, without the visual differences. on the V8supercar site they never have mentioned AUII only AU and, I've noticed every car BAR Lowndes car has the orange rear indicator lights. No AUII has orange indicator lights, that was only on the original AU in 98. Anyone able to help me out:confused: :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused:

In an interview done recently Howard Marsden said that they aren't going to go to AUII nose cones and such 'cause they couldn't justify the expense... Doesn't worry me either way. As long as we keep winning.. :D

I've been asking teh same question about AU2 front end on the racecars - AU1 looks old hat and second rate compared to AU2. I think it IS worth the money to upgrade.

If they aint going to bother putting the AUII front end on their V8 Supercars they can atleast put the Clear AUII indicator lenses on the back!! (Like Lowndes's car).

It does look better in my opinion! It didnt take Holden very long to update changes to V8 supercars from VTI, VTII (rear indicator lenses) and VX (new front and rear!).

Fair enough about the front but please get the Clear rear inidicators on all the major teams!

Cheers

I dont know about anyone else, but when I'm watching the supercars, I'm looking at the racing and the carnage, not the tail lights.

The only people who get to see the tail lights are the Holdens! Just like it is on the street

I think Brad Jones car has the clear indicators, but its hard to tell when the only time you see him is when he has a problem. :D
