I have been searching for something to finnish off the look of the Dallara. What do you guys think of this? Is it too much??

This website has alot of old wings from vintage cars. I think this was on Unsers car at one time...

Usually, I'd say you can't do TOO much to a Dallara that wreaks of being TOO much in the first place.

It also wreaks of FUNCTION and SIMPLICITY... and that would go for the Original Dallara Spoiler also.  It was a bit too much but in a simplistic way and I bet it was even FUNCTIONAL.

This triple-whatever wing doesn't "work" visually or aesthically IMHO.

I think the closer ya stick to the original looks, the better... do all your mods inside the mechanical arena.

Can you post pictures of one without a wing.
It will just add drag and you could never go fast enough to get any real benefit from it.

If I was going to spend money on a wing, rather then the 30$ I spent on my junkyard spoiler. I would buy something like this
