Come on Deano, why get yourself upset with this stuff, read it with a smile on your face and you see it in a totally different light.

Wouldn't surprise me if Henry and Lester are interchangeable, that is, they are the same person!!!!!!!!!

As much as you don't like the column, the fact remains it is written on the basis of what is really happening to the ford guys out on the track, and therefore contains more than a small element of truth....

To a certain degree he is right, but one thing he ignored was these Falcons wern't really outright contendors or leading (with maybe Winton the exceptions) when the engine failures/spins etc occur.

He may be right about the Falcons suspension, but not the geometry, that is completely adjustable anyway.
Probably what isn't right with it is the rear arms mounting/length (will be fixed by project blueprint) and the front track which I believe is narrower than the Commodore.
On top of this, I also believe that the front undertray on the Commodore is wider and hence more effective.
So, given that these things can't be changed by the teams, it appears that the base Falcon package needs adjusting - ie parity.
I think it was DK that mentioned mechanical grip though and I tend to agree, the rear arms and a wider front track would seem to be a good way to go rather than front spoiler changes.

As with all of these stories by Henry and Lester, its just a wind up and doesn't have all the facts!
