Tuomo, in addition to the aero and mechanical benefits previously mentioned, some of the molding benefits are:
- Hinge is precisely located and straight.
- Hinge fabric is naturally pinched dry and forced very close to the surface during layup so very little scoring is needed.
- Wiper is molded to a very precise geometry and is vastly lighter and stronger than an ugly handmade microballoon wiper.
- Post-mold finishing is greatly simplified and expedited. Just a mold-defined strip of material to remove and some light scoring.

Sorry for going off topic, I don't think the Precision uses any such techniques. It's just an example of some of the cleverly addressed details we may expect from Samba.
