Save your money and get a $80k UK import, and tickle it up if you want a track warrior.

But a nice road car is what they're best at.

You can put a silencer on a std 355 and gave the exact same power and sound.

And then all you need is big front brakes and a spring kit and it'll perform the same too.

355c has a few little things, like bigger oil cooler and numerous other "improvements" that don't get actually felt in the driving experience.

FP proved it..... You can bolt a few bits on cheaply and get a std 355 to do what a ch does.

Didn't I just say you can do that with a normal 911? Does that make it an RS? no.

there is a lot involved in turning a standard 993 into RS specs.

see with an RS,there is much difference to a standard 993 in the mechanics and other areas.

To put ALL the bits onto a 355 that a Challenge has would cost a shit load of money, and then, like a RS clone, it'd only be a cheap copy.

I had a long drive of a RS. Great car, but nowhere near as interesting to drive as a 355ch. There's a reason I bought one and kept it for so long....I could have bought 2 RSs at the time for the same price.

As I said, that a 355ch isn't as expensive or more than an RS is a sad reflection on the average Ferrari owner. Nothing else.

There's a lot involved into make a 355 a challenge spec too....but you CAN just do suspension and brakes, as FF said. Does that make it a CH? Would doing that make an RS? Of course not.

Wasn't the 355ch a dealer option? Ie parts package that was dealer level installed

Yes.

The only non bolt on bits are a small plate welded in to the front shock towers, and the welded bases to the bolt in cage.

There is not one addition to the engine other than silencer and deletion of the bypass valve

was this ever a ADR issue?
