    Most definitely - but it's also going to cause a bit of a shuffle with those who were so used to the twin springs.

    I really hope it doesn’t send Erebus back, I hope they take to it well and move forward a little. If Reynolds won Bathurst they’d have been well in the mix to win the championship, which would have been so awesome.

    All but a few have been released.

    Only Hazelwood, Heimgartner and the two GRM cars remain to be released.

    They won the contract via tender.

    They must've made some decent money off it, because teams were throwing complete units in the cars several times a race weekend. The parts had nowhere near the lifespan Albins were claiming.

    Warranty is a rare thing in a race car.

    It'd be interesting to compare gearbox reliability by driver and whether this is an issue with sequentials. I can recall in the old H pattern days, F1 and other teams mentioning one driver fucks gearboxes where the other driver in the team hardly puts any wear on the them.

    That's what you get when you consign a 4WD gearbag manufacturer to make your race transmission.
