You can understand the issue though.
WAU has a facility in Walkinshaw Racing with a top level engine shop, arguably not busy enough to use all the guys & girls & gear to full capacity.

While WAU pays a 3rd party to supply suboptimal engines that seem to get recalibrated multiple times, and are still arguably not at the same performance level as the KRE Chevrolet units.

I would probably be piddled off as well.

Maybe WAU can homologate a Ford dashboard and produce them for the 10 cars on the grid plus the spares… you know, to show they can do it..

Ford Oil Pump Update

Three seasons in, including the test year, and they are STILL messing with basic mechanical parts..

When does it end?
And shouldn’t V8Supercar be mandating an ‘all or none’ approach to rollout??

Couple of Ford teams with straight line speed concerns after Darwin but I'd be surprised if there are any parity reviews until after the transient dyno runs in the US & any adjustments that may be needed from those runs.

Funny they had nothing to say last round?

Never happy unless they are dominating, yet they have glaring issues with drivers, strategy and other things. You can't paritise quality of an organisation.

If they spent as much time improving as they do complaining they would be unbeatable.
DJR drivers are ordinary and strategy always blows.
Tickford are more inconsistent than anybody else and throw away results regularly.
Grove team is great but effectively have 2 rookies. No senior guy to help with setup.
WAU look to be the best by some margin but also can be a rooster Friday and a feather duster by Sunday.

Given their enduro speed last year I wondered how much Mr Estre lent to the program.

Hmmm he seemed to know his way round the corners of a car pretty well in GP2, Renault 3.5 and Aston GTs. Plus his Mustang is a lot different to the Last supecar he raced regularly.
I am sure his input at Grove is being well received.
