Based on what I have read from a few articles, here is what I think should happen (although, I know it will not and probably cannot.) Dallara is charging for the chassis exactly what they said they would (per Foyt interview.) However, some of the things you need to race the car are not included in the crates when you open the "chassis." The car should be considered in multiple sections. Engine - Everything provided by Chevy, Honda, or Lotus. Chassis - Everything that comes from Dallara in the chassis crates. Aero - All aero parts included in the aero kit. Everything else needed to go racing except tires, fuel, trans which are separately speced. The "everything else needed to go racing" should be open for teams to build or source themselves. This would have put Dallara in a position to include it in the chassis crates, or have to compete to supply it. If it was included in the initial price of the chassis, then the teams would have to replace it with OEM parts. If it was not included and considered an option, then the teams could determine their own cost by shopping around. JMHO.
