Whats everyones thoughts on this car? It was brought in to cut cost, increase saftey, create more parity, and increase competition by eliminate the aero push. There is no question that the saftey aspect is there, no problem with that. Nascar deserves a big A plus on that. The other aspects of the COT have failed miserably. Beyond miserably. For every Dover race you have 6 Texas/Phoenix/Atlanta races that go with it where the race is awful. I dont see how the much improvment has been made. There are still only 2 or 3 teams that have this car figured out from this point last year. The aero push is still there, even at Phoenix. The parity is rare that only 12 drivers have won races this year, and only 6 different teams. To compare in F1, 5 different teams won this year in roughly half the events. The cost factor is a complete 180 from what was intended. There is no question beyond a shadow of a doubt that the COT has increased the cost of this sport expoentially. Now what do I believe needs to be done? Dexter does this mean we should abandon the new car and go back to the Twisted Sister? No of course not, that is not realistic. What I think needs to change, and change next Monday is this. The strict rules on the mechanical portions of this car need to be loosened up. Think of of the car as a maze. The more routes you have to get out of the maze, the more people that will solve it. If the car isnt so damn difficult to figure out, more teams will figure out and thus be competitive. Nascar needs to be out there testing round the clock. They, along with Goodyear, need to invest their own money into the development of the car to provide a better show. If the show is better, people will come to the race track and watch it on TV. When people are doing that money is being invested into the sport. Its a spend money to make money attitude. What do you guys think?
