    Lack of room for all the sponsors isn't really a problem for anyone these days. Hasn't been for a while. If more people start watching, sponsor space will be found with whatever there is to work with, as it always has.

    But yes, this is the best looking car since the DP-01 and GF09. I'm amazed at how much better seeing the open wheels from the rear looks.

    Both threads about 2018 liveries must be merged. This one is more legitimate, I suppose...

    I wonder if it looked great on a computer screen, but just turn out as well when applied to a real race car?

    The words that come to mind first when looking at that livery are words that I cannot type here.
    That livery is sexy

    Most of the teams with major sponsors haven't changed and sponsors change so often, it seems kind of pointless. Does everyone have the kits now?

    It isn't about changing sponsors, it's a brand new bodywork, and a new season. Even minor touring car championships regularly have unveilings and events where the new car is presented. It seems like a missed opportunity.

    I remember Andretti Autosport did a really cool unveiling for their 2014 paint schemes prior to the 2014 season! I wish they did it still. But I do know that SPM will be doing an unveiling of their both cars on Feb 1

    Do we know where the first team aeroscreen testing will be? The news was that the teams were going to get a look right before Xmas.

    “Our goal was to have one on the car this past fall or this winter, but there were a couple of things that happened that we didn’t get that done,” Frye said. “The first quarter of 2018 is our goal when to get it on the car. There have been a lot of behind-the-scenes things done with simulation and wind tunnels.

    Based on the angle of impact with the debris, would a windscreen, with an open top, have deflected debris and saved Justin Wilson's life? Or would it have made no difference? We need to account for the top-down drop or just not bother.

    Without knowing the actual details, I would say yes.

    It's open for debate in his case due to lack of data, but for anything to 'drop in' and cause injury, it needs to be in front of the helmet before impact. The window of opportunity for anything to fall between a protective device and the helmet, if the car is at speed, is very, very small, or even impossible (especially for larger debris, a high protective device, or both).

    There are no good TV angles available for Wilson's crash, but I would bet part of the debris (which was large) is at helmet level before the point where a protective device would be fitted.

    This is only testing after-all. Teams used to go to sebring with little more than their primary sponsor on a bare cf chassis. Several F1 teams are known to have distinct testing schemes. I think it simply more to do with the reality that many teams don’t jave firm season long primaries.

    Hopefully the Veach car gets a little more polished. The gray number is awful needs some white outline to make it pop.

    I think the sponsor logos will be unreadable on tv as well, judging from those photo shots.

    New sponsor for both Ganassi NASCAR cars. Wonder if that sponsor ends up on Dixon’s car.

    That number won't pass tech, they'll definitely end up making it more visible.

    Could be. Already on the nose of the 10, while they left it blank on the 9.

    I'm really loving the new RLLR schemes.

    I should have clarified. Have we seen anything from the side, i can't tell much from just the front and i will respectfully disagree with you, so far these are my least favorite schemes but i'd love to see the sides before i give an official opinion.

    Also do we know if Steak N Shake is back for another year at all? I can't recall any announcements regarding sponsors for RLL other than Bobby saying they were excited to announce their sponsors

    Steak and Shake is not currently listed as a "Partner" on the Team's website.

    Steak n' Shake's continued partnership wasn't announced until mid-February in 2017, I wouldn't read too much into it one way or another.
