it's not that different from the alpha. paul made some tweaks that resulted in a few sharper lines. that's about it. this is not intended for concours. it's intended to make you a faster racer. it does, however, look sweet, just like paul.

Hi guys, I run a mazda 6 for rubber and foam and i picked up a DNA 1 and was wondering if anyone used it and what do you think of it compared to the Mazda 6? thanks.

I'm normally not so negative, or vocal, but "Mohawk" is a stupid name for a body. Sorry, I know this has no place in this thread and adds nothing to the conversation but dude..Mohawk? Really?

Mohawk..mull it over Parma and realize what your doing to yourself. Mohawk...you automatically think of Mr. T when it's said aloud; and your naming your next body it.

.......

Anyway, at Snowbirds for foam you will see Alfa's and DNA's. I'm partial to the Alfa myself, tried the DNA and it's really stuck and neutral but I still do not like it (it is faster for other people though, IME) so if your going to run foam I'd suggest buying a couple of both.

Unless you want to rock a mullett, I mean mohawk of course.

Mazda 6 really is not a foam body, it feels like it has way too much downforce and the car buries itself into the carpet when running foam with it. The DNA or any other foam body feels way faster, so if your running a Mazda I'd suggest anything else and just try it ... you'll never know until you try it, even if other people like or dislike a body you should try it yourself and see if it suits you. Go out and buy a DNA, Alfa, and a G6 and give them a whirl.

It looks similar to the Alfa but with some changes to it that make it easier to drive, but still has steering and results in faster lap times.

Are you kidding me?, I don't think the name of the body has to do with the handling, After all it's just a name get over it.

I think the DNA is more foam biased IMO.

I have run the Parma Alfa since it came out (beginning of '04 I think) in stock rubber and I tried the DNA body and lost .2 a lap consistently. It definately made the car turn-in harder then what I was used to. I got a Mazda 6 also and haven't really had time to try it out because I switched to foams right afterward and then sold the "6". For the one run I did try it seemed to car the car "float more" in the corners (like less downforce).

So for stock rubber the consensus is what body...think that's the class I will run in Fla.

Parma Alfa and Mohwak will work great on stock foam. So will the Protoform DNA.
