Value of Towable Genoa Cars on PSC37???

I have been reading 'Sailpower: Trim and Techniques for Cruising Sailors' by Peter Nielsen. One of the potential upgrades he mentions is towable genoa cars due to the likelihood of changing the headsail's sheet lead given this arrangement.

My question is, any experience with this modification to a PSC37 that anyone can share? Is this over-engineering? Does tuning the sheet lead position more frequently really get more from the headsail for the PSC37? Practical experience appreciated!
