    Yes it is. Be nice to get the 88 in the same tunnel one day. Then, it's no longer apples to oranges, but MoPower to MoPower! :cool:

    Thank you for posting. That's an interesting article and it looks like there is much more to explore on the site.

    My takeaway... The Daytona's engineers did an incredible job considering the knowledge/tools of the day. However, they had the advantage of fewer regulations and could create outrageous shapes. Today's designers have more knowledge of the science, so much of it can be baked into the "average" car's shape. Sadly, today's cars must be shaped like rounded upright bricks, which are aerodynamic but have as much curb appeal as a mailbox.
