Light???Light???????????? They are 1350kg cars hahaha! I have more respect for them for driving cars with big power, big weight & skinny minny tyres IMO!

Bloody commodore drivers, thinking that 1350kg is a light car lol! Its just that your commodores are porkers hahaha!

My Subaru even has nearly about 100kg less weight than a that, it tips the scales at 1242kg (on the last weighbridge ticket for my compliance plate). Only 320 or so hp though, wish I had 600 Sad

My clock goes to 320 - haven't had it that far yet, but been up over 250, which is quite an achievement on NZ roads...

Sorry but what is the point of having more manufacturers when the cars are all exactly the same anyway?
This is seriously why I don't watch the Supercars anymore, since project Blue Print it just doesn't have the same 'feel' anymore. I miss the old days when we basically had modified road Falcons and Commodores on the track. Even before that when we had all manner of manufacturers in the game it was more interesting than the team based sport it is now.

As a Holden fan, I'm going to continue blaming this on Ford and their poor sportsmanship Razz (please note the sarcasm, please, no flame war intended)
