Default New Protoform body: DNA1: For Racing Only

I really like the looks of this thing... definitely falls into the anti-Stratus category. I wonder how the body war will develop now that the ROAR rules are changing to not force brand licensing for the bodies to be approved.

This looks great.

Looks like the bastard child of the CTS and the G6. But I bet it works.

Nice looking body. Has some resemblance to the old Alfa Romeo bodies of the recent past. I guess the Alfa is where this one got its DNA.

If this is suppose to be somewhat realistic (closest class would be DTM as it looks like NOTHING else), the front hood needs to be slammed more and the cabin needs to be wider, slightly longer and the roofline needs to be longer as well.

like so Schneider's Merc
or Hakkinen's Merc
or what the DNA resemble's mostly..
The Audi

1/12 pan car bodies used to look somewhat realistic years ago, now they look like doorstops.

1/10 sedan bodies used to look somewhat realistic years ago, now they look like loaves of bread.

So we go down another slippery slope that it appears slot car racing already visited. How long till the rear fenders are slab sided for max downforce instead of rounded (a la Parma's M-Type)? How long till the "greenhouse" is only 2" wide to allow max air to the wing? I guess we are lucky in that there are minimum height rules for TC's. Perhaps there should be more rules.

Kudos to the originality of the design of the DNA, though.
