You try to make a point about parity in a supercars thread. But the series has such a poor history managing this and applying fair rules. That if you continued on you'd end up looking as dumb as an F1 fb poster.

Got some examples of these unfair rules only to ford?

Well, it started in 1993. Ford teams produced the better car over the Holdens, winning the first 12 heats and 6 rounds overall before being gutted with the front splitter prior to rd7 in Mallala. Holden then won 5/6 remain heats and 2/3 rounds outright. This change was particularly advantageous at Bathurst, Holden filling the top 4 in qualifying and top 5 in the race...
...
This then led to the lack of action over the advantage the VX Commodore had over the AU Falcon. Which Holden reaped the benefit of success for many years prior to begrudgingly having to change the specifications with project blueprint for 2003...
...
This then leads to 2019. When after complying with the rules and being checked off. The specifications of the Mustang have to be fundamentally changed to their disadvantage.

In a parity series, I've never heard CoG phrase being used before. It's invented.

93 was before my time of taking an interest.
Even still that doesn’t seem like a history of being Holden biased when you couple it with project blueprint aswell as last year allowing Nissan and ford to use composite panels after they were all ticked off.
In no way do I think it’s been handled well.
Ford also have 2 people on the commission with one of them being Ryan story so maybe the complaints need to be directed at them.
However deep people think RD’s pockets are Rodgers are far bigger.
I don’t own a Holden and never have.
I tend to follow drivers rather than cars.

It wasn't Penske, it was Scotty up the front. The biggest thing was the Mustang was developed with the single spring, the Opels are playing catch up with that.
There was a good article in auto action about this how the mustang was built for the single spring and the holdens are not looking forward to see the next new 888 car goes.

When I saw the post, I knew what you were talking about. They’re possibly the dumbest animals I’ve seen. They graze on the grass along the track, then cross the track like nothing’s happening while a race is on. They don’t always make it to the other side. They have caused double yellows.
