Looks like a lot of guys were using the Alpha body instead of the Mazda 6? Was the Protoform Alpha the popluar choice or was it the Parma or Losi Alpha?

It seems to me the Parma alpha was the body of choice. There were some proto alphas, but very few Mazdas.

Dude was so fast that he was able to turn in off the sweeper 15 feet early (ok, so it was 1.5 feet), park it nose first into the board, get marshalled, and still have a half straightaway lead.
