Good. One of the few smart decisions that NASCAR has made this year.
Agreed. All the teams and drivers are hating switching back and forth between the two cars. And we can put an end to the "Car Of Tomrrow" talk.

I agree Harley, I don't see what was wrong with the Car of Today. I'm not gonna complain about COT, but it seems like since Toyota got in, they had to slap the ricer "accesories" on the car. When I don't see what was wrong with the regular car.

After seeing the car up close at Martinsville, it is starting to grow on me. After all of the aero mods on the car, it is still a racecar. The wing doesn't really bother me anymore.

I'm with you guys, I don't care a whole lot for the new car, but if the switch is goign to be made... just make the switch. No sense in having a different car every other week. It's here to stay...

I can't believe I am agreeing with something Jeff Gordon says but this time I am. 1st- It needs to be run on the 1.5 mile tracks and above. What is this car really going to do in the big one at Talladega or Daytona? How is it going to draft? Are they still going to need the restrictor plates? Still a lot of questions!! 2nd-I also like what Jeff is saying about it puts the driving back into the drivers hands. Once the other Teams play catch up to Hendricks I think will be be seeing more heads up racing than we have been seeing in these last five or six years. If the car isn't set up perfectly they still can be competitive. As for the wing? I'm kind of in the middle on that one. It's different, It would seem like it would fall to the Toyota's advantage but as we are all seeing, toyota just hasn't got anything going for them so far! So I don't think that is really an issue anymore. But back to the super speedways, Is it going to help or hender the performances of the cars when we get to those tracks where Drafting is so very important to the race. Guess we will see soon enough. I still think NASCAR is jumping the gun in saying it will be run full time. I can see where the teams would want it to be one type of car and not multiple types plus the general purpose was to help teams get on a more even $$ playing field. If they do go full time it should help teams that are running on these tighter budgets.

I agree with that too... Darlington's the biggest track the car has run on so far. What I'd like to see is NASCAR run a mock-race at Talladega. Take 20 teams or so to Talladega and set up a 50-80 lap race. You'd get a good look at how the cars draft and pass. I don't know how do-able that actually is, but it's better than just sitting back and hoping everything goes well.

Well I'm happy about the decsion, but like Tater said I want to see it on a RP track first, to see how they draft. I'm hoping it will break up those 30 car clusterf*cks.

There was nothing wrong with the regular car.
ASSCAR is just changing the sport to fit Toyota.
Now all thats left is to change the name of it to IROC. :doh:

"ASSCAR is just changing the sport to fit Toyota."

Wow. The masterplan is revealed! It has really helped them out a lot, hasn't it. Considering all of the COT races have been won by Chevy and Hendrick Motorsports, I can really see the advantage that NASCAR is giving Toyota with the COT.

I second that. Nothing is wrong with the regular car as I see it. They really do need to stick with one car though, I don't really like them changing back and forth, in my opinion it's stupid.

This is all about trying to help the smaller teams, so they don't have to attempt to keep two different styles of cars in the shop!!!
