Actually, the space between the stripes serves a purpose. the stripes, even though there are not high off the body, they are high enough so the air gets between those stripes and creates enough turbulence to create down force,
and down force creates traction and traction creates power and power creates speed. LOL..


Alex, seriously they are just for looks.
