Post SSC Rear Wing
Does anyone have an SSC rear wing they’d sell?

Thanks
Alex

Oh dear , what's happened :?: If not totally smashed to small pieces , it's easy and cheaper to repair from behind with F Glass race matting/resin . Put a photo up here Alex

Fortunately it’s the bolt on wing I’m after as opposed to bodywork damage!

Hi Alex

SSC never sold them, it was a bolt on boy racer bit, purely for photos when the RT kit was announced.
IIRC Tim had it checked & it acheived bugger all, so it fell off again !

Cheers
Matt

I know Phil’s old yellow car had one (now DH2s/ Dave’s), its the mounting bracket I’m ideally after as they did a neat job of fitting without damaging the rear fibreglass, the other upside is it was a “factory option” as such I can run a wing in “Road Going” sprint classes :)

The marketing hype implied it was more than boy racer “The rear wing was developed at Swansea University in there motorsport dept. the RT also has a full front splitter and a rear diffuser, all these 3 items are options, should all work as Chris worked on the aerodynamics of the Aston Martin Vanquish.”

The looks are not to my taste, but downforce and higher corner speed on track is!

Looking at it the end plates are too small to be effective, but with a bit of tinkering I’m sure more grip can be achieved.

I’ve added a large front splitter and that’s made a significant difference to the front end grip and feel at speed, need to balance it out.
