How about we sponsor a team and bring in some outside con******ts from the US. I can volunteer my time and engine experience. I know several other aftermarket tuners here in the states that can do this as well that owe me some favors.

hehe

yea I know being a smart ass.

If there was no HRT the racing would be fantastic, they have increased their margin over everybody.

I know how down the Ford people would be but what about fellow Holden teams how would they be feeling.

I dunno, 3 different Holden teams other than HRT scored podium finishes.

Yeah but apart from Murphy( bascally HRT) in the 2nd race no other Holden had a chance of beating HRT on straight out pace.
You would have seen how easy Bright was cutting his way through the field in the 2nd race, nobody could keep either of the HRT cars behind them for more than 1 lap.

How about AVESCO putting some cash back into the sport along with perhaps Ford and Holden and getting the cars looked at by independent Engineers to find out if true parity exists and if not then what needs to be fixed. I remember reading an article in Auto Action a while back and the guy who was some drag car rear suspension guru could not beleive how much better the rear of the Holden was compared to the Fords, he said it would really effect drive out of corners, note this was a Homogolated part nothing to do with the actual road cars themselves. The other thing was I thought the engine had to be moved lower in the VT's from the VS's as the bonnet on the VT's would not allow for the airbox to fit, lower centre of gravity for the engine and the gearbox!! Everyone knows in go Karts if you can increase the track of your front wheels it greatly increases your grip around corners, I beleive the Dunnydore has a wider track than the AU, which is also going to help carry the speed through to corners then onto the straight!

So with a far better rear end, lower centre of gravity and a wider track, is it any wonder we are not winning on the track?
