Im in! Now how about a Ford Fusion TC body since the Mazda6 was/is so popular and the Fusion is based of a stretched Mazda6 platform. It would be nice to see some american cars back on the track.

It seems to have some shape to it which makes it stand out from the stratus, it should be a winner

I like the sounds of their new carpet shell, cant wait to see some pictures, it should look awesome

Word. I prefer nice "flow-ey" rounded looking bodies. Any contractors out there missing any bricks?

It looks like it has similar lines to the way the CTS did as far as the blunt front end. Might be a decent beater carpet body if nothing else.. But being a Dodge fan, I will have at least one of them..

Dale does awesome work on both, his race bodies, and his hobby level "realistic" bodies. His Cadillac body is a great example of that. I could be wrong, but I doubt this body was designed with the track in mind. It's good looking and will probably work well for what it was designed for. But I doubt it'll be much of a performer on the track. Never know though. I do want to see what this new carpet body is going to look like. Might have to get one painted up for Vegas

Looks good. I haven't seen a nose that flat on a body in quite a while. And that roof line gives a whole new meaning to the word slammed.

Seems like a great body for the club racers who aren't crazy enough to pretend they can feel the difference between a Mazda 6 and Stratus 3.0.

I'd buy one...

Default SRT8 Charger body

Jon Kerr:
Thanks for the kind words. It was great to finally meet you at the Reedy race. Your assumption regarding the Charger body's intended purpose is pretty much 100% accurate. I'm hoping there's still a market for those guys that want to look "stylin'" as they qualify securely in the "C" main at the local club race.

On the other hand, the DNA1 is pure race-body and no "bling". Photo's will be up tomorrow or the day after. Paul Lemieux is still testing - so photo shoot was delayed.
