I wonder how hard it'd be to get into the stands.

Oval or infield?

There are more than 50 different combinations of left / right spindles available for the current cars.

Since the new car uses a rack I'd imagine can use a different length steering arm. I would have thought they had started off with the Supercar parts as a baseline. But maybe they did. Likely they will have a Nascar approved oval track "set-up" and another for RC.

Article doesn't really say much other than, "everything is good guys!" Which kind of annoys me, I want details!

yeah I hear that. I imagine they are switching out parts and pieces for testing so many areas aren't set in stone. It's a work in progress

Most likely not the final product, but there's this. It's not bad, just shave an inch or two (alternatively just get rid of it) off the splitter and NASCAR will be good to go.

Couple of things about that car, that is the first test car, the 5 lug nuts are fake. (according to what I read on the internet)

If no one had pointed out the wheels are changing, I probably wouldn’t have noticed until the 600, or later. To me, they’re just there to mount the tires on.
Even luddite Charlie gets it. :D I don't care what it LOOKS like! Does it race well. Can they figure out a way to slow the cars down enough to make the cars be able to race side-by-side? I know...lots of people will only accept the car IF it breaks track records everywhere. Nope. Let's make oval racing competitive again. I still think they need to put jumps & whoops on the straights at the plate tracks. Maybe a sand section?

Its not fake. Its the first prototype they tested that was just the gen 7 chassis. Long before they decided on single lug.
