I know it polarises people but the large rear wing on the Countach really destroys it for me.  I remember at the time trying to find a road test where it was tested with, and without, but was never able to come up with anything.  The cars just seem so pure without it.

Couldn't agree more. Countach never had a wing until  Walter Wolfe fitted his own car with a front wing from his F1 teams race cars.  People saw it and started asking the factory for them.  That was that and the design purity was ruined.

I don't mind the wing on the F40/F50, but the ones they stick on cars like the 355CH leave me cold.

As you well know, the challenge wing is functional and looks are irrelevant in racing.

Very functional and very ugly. As  you know, I preferred to go slow than make my beautiful car look ugly...and slow I went!

I love my car. Buy your own

Great idea.

Indeed

Other than Marc Jones to BBs 308 and Ianb to his chopped truck... has anyone else fitted a kit out here???

BBs GT4 felt great to me. I can't see a down side really.

I see Cummins Classic Cars in Sydney are the agents for EZ out here... have they fitted any Ferrari kits?? Did they do/help ianb??

A quick rack and the power steering is certainly the way to go on a 308.
Why such a long face?
