    I love 'my' Prius, but...


    besides, aren't all the cars the COTF now?

    The Toyota's ran strong during Daytona testing last week.
    I voted at least one win and probably more than that. Gibbs Racing will make it happen.
    MWR might even pull one off......nah.

    COT is a joke? Basically you're right (IMO), all the car bodies are the same. Its up to the engine builders this year, who can tweak that extra horsepower and not get caught doing it.

    With that being said, I'm still a Tony Stewart fan and now I can finally put a decal on my Tacoma truck.

    I think Joe Gibbs Racing will do the same for Toyota as he did for the Redskins and that is build a winning team. It might take a few years but he should get a win or two this season.

    I haven't really followed NASCAR since they stopped welding doors shut - so it's been a while. I don't think Toyota will make any more of a difference than any other make since the reality is the brands are only stickers and a big check. More has to do with the talent of the teams and drivers versus sponsors.

    Just my opinion,

    While itís true that the COT chassis, roll cage & body is generic across manufactures, major engine components and development are still largely provided by Ford, Chevy, Toyota, & Dodge.

    COT? Just a little curious

    How can you keep calling it the car of tomorrow if it is already here today?

    I predict just enough wins for Toyota to cause the real contenders massive headaches. MWR may be lucky to qualify for 3/4 of the races. HMS will be the power to contend with.
