I believe Trev with the manual-stradale-conversion on FChat has dropped a challenge rack in which is pointier.

No it's not, the only difference between a road car rack, and a challenge car rack, is the steering lock is reduced to prevent crushing of the brake ducts that a C car has and road car doesn't.

There are less turns lock to lock, but the lock is not equal.

There are (removable) packers inside the rack to control this.

A 360GT has the lock even further reduced, due to bigger wheel offset/wider scrub radius, but it too uses the exact same rack as a road car.

The rack/pinion gears are the same.
On a 355(C), there is a choice of ratio, but not 360.

That is odd, he goes into quite a bit of description about it. I'll snip the bit for discussion - interesting topic.
C'mon, do it!

ahh, the internet, you don't need to convince me that much of it is bullshit!

The guy is wrong, he may simply be mistaken of course, but he's wrong.
