    Yeah, I don't know who thought that design element would be a good idea, or even an acceptable one... but whatever school of design they went to needs to have their academic accreditation revoked.

    The a-pillar isn't a design element I don't think

    What in the hell is wrong with Hendrick and A-pillars?

    Definitely an improvement but that A-pillar is horrendous. The black number is still a trainwreck too.

    At this point, we should probably classify Hendrick's A-Pillar fuckery as a fetish. Much like with George Lucas and severed limbs...

    I think we had a whole thread maybe discussing this, but the A Pillar (A-Post as it's officially referred to by NASCAR) is not for design, Hendrick is adding thick-edged vinyl on the A pillar and that tiny edge is producing a fraction more downforce. I know it sounds lame or "not worth it", but any little advantage a team can get, they try. They started actually peeling the edge up a little to create a tiny spoiler on the A pillar and they finally went to far at Homestead in 2016 and NASCAR made the #48 team re-do their A pillar.

    I mean, this all isn't "fact" or "proven", no quotes on this from NASCAR or Hendrick, but I used to be an official in the ASA Series in the 90's and know a ton of crew guys still in NASCAR. This is happening 100%. Not cheating, just pushing the rule book in a gray area as any good team should be doing. :)

    Here's the story last year when they started in the rear. https://www.foxsports.com/nascar/st...e-a-post-chase-sprint-cup-championship-112016

    This scheme does make me think of Ricky Craven's #2 car, but then again that's just the blue talking. It's not bad but this number skew...ugh...

    I like that way more than Jr.'s Axalta car last year. And completely destroys his 2016 "paint scheme".

    Could've done something new. Meh. Looks good, no doubt, but it's more disappointing than anything.
