Has the aero data shown that the advantages with that body are worth the risk?

I think the Daytona body is one of the best looking bodies out there. Hands down.

I'm sure they have shock data as well as other information that shows how it functions aerodynamically. But does that tell the tale on how it handles for the driver? Likely only in part. Its been noted in other motor sports sectors that too smooth a body can create lift too. My arm chair analysis points to funny cars. Does the back end of John Force's FC get narrower or wider? If you look at the design diagrams you'll see why I think McCoy's new '79 body is going to prove better for this reason. Plus I think it will have a longer wheelbase, definite plus.
