Nice production value to the report.
With the 100g chassis there seems to be more diversity in designs that works.
At Bpr, at least on the king, with no weight rule, the chassis design has been refined to the point where the chassis looks the same.

The chassis look the same because everyone copies the winners.  Are they setting new lap totals every race?  Are the qualifying times quicker than before? Perhaps some of the old chassis would work just as well but we don't know when everyone "follows the leader"?  :)

It is always a pleasure to race with the extremely well run Retro East ™.

 

Thanks Noose

I guess it is a lot easier to follow the leader.
Just look at f1 where racing point cloned the mb design.
It is a lot work building and developing chassis, a few years back DCR went on a tear and basically built a new chassis every race and had ace racers racing them.
