I think that the "fangs" are use to channel better the air on the high speed section. the more laminated the air flow is, you will have more downforce and less drag.
my 2 cents.

Hope we atrt getting this types of bodies for 200mm.
What!!!! More downforce equals more drag.....right?

I'd like to see a new 200mm body from Protoform. The current lineup is getting tired. What was the last 200mm body to be released?

Elliot, thanks for posting these pics... really helps see the contour of the body... Is this body better suited for a specific car?

I saw 1 yesterday and it was working very good or it was just the driver. The wing comes with a notch out of the center like the body, I assume to force more air to the center?

Wow, that's crazy. I was just coming back to this thread to post about how cool it would be to see a 200mm DNA. I love the DNA. Can't wait to see the nitro version.

Any hints on the other new body or is that still classified information? I can keep a secret.

The scoop behind the engine, will that be a drag issue?

It is not a scoop, it is a fairing to make the disturbed air coming off the engine settle down before it gets to the rear wing. It should reduce drag as well.
