    I'm not thrilled with the esthetics, no where near as bitchin' as the Yosemite Sam flaps I had on the rear of my '69 Chevelle in High School. ...

    I had no idea the rear wings took such abuse. With the body red I opted for red wings too as I didn't like the color contrast with the carbon fiber...
