    Was there ever an improvement made to the drop down front bumper that was released (and rescinded) a few years back?  With the recent plethora of complaints about aggressive driving and contact, I’m surprised it hasn’t received more attention here.

    Yes. The improvement was made the same year and has worked with good success in improving driver conduct and the quality of racing. I would be happy to see it implemented here un the US.

    I have a couple sets of the brackets for the “improved” drop down bumper for testing purposes.  Little taps aren’t going to dislodge the bumper, but repeated ones, or a good whack, will definitely dislodge it.  Its still in place, but a little loose.
