Not a guess... Dai WILL be building a new car in the off season.

I'm 90% sure that Gushi will be in a new car.

I feel that Powers is 50/50 on building a new car (possibly a Z w/ V8?)

Ryan Tuerck in RMR Genesis, Rhys either in another Genesis or in a Veloster (don't they come AWD in Europe or Asia or something?)

Tyler McQuarrie to fill Ryan Tuerck's spot in the Camaro

Dai to drive new FT86 with a TRD Nascar motor in it

Tony Angelo to put LS1 into an RX8 and piss off all the rotary people

James Deane takes Tyler McQuarrie's spot in the ASD 350z (that gets converted to RHD)

No event won by a driver with a 4cyl or 6cyl engine (sorry Aasbo / Rhys)

Blaze1 sets up a 'dunk-tank' at FD LB pits and Andy Luk buys every ticket available.

More like Ryan Sage lol

I think me and Andy are cool.

Predictions:

New Rules, New Track, Weak (home grown) Rookies, Same TV deal, Different Sponsors.

Who knows.... Jim and Ryan might just up and sell the series.

Cars will be 3 car lengths apart for most of the track but the media will take pictures at the brief moment they are close.

I just watched the highlights of D1 final round. Imamura vs Saito was epic.

Something needs to give with FD. Maybe they need classes or something. I had this epiphany that what if there where 4 classes and the winner from each class made up the final four. I came up with that one myself.

LOL its all good

But supposedly the teams don't like it. Rather be ranked 16th overall then 3rd in a class.

Briggs car will be by far the most shocking privateer vehicle.

i expect FR-s/BR-z

Rookie cars E36 with LS1, 1J s14, something 4 door.

2 car Hyundai camp, possibly genesis & velocitor.... but maybe old genesis and new genesis.
