Myself and a couple others at my home track got to try the Mohawk.

The body is awesome. Steering is about equal to a Parma Alfa, but stability is soo much better. You can make the car more aggressive and the body takes care of the rest. I didn't think it would make a difference, but it does. Not to mention the body looks really cool.

Parma has another winner with this one.

I ran it as did alot of the stock A main at the novak race, and alot of the mod and 19t guys. I went back and forth alot with the alfa but eventually settled on the Mohawk and found it alot easier to drive and faster. It is alot more planted and doesnt skate around as much as the alfa.

it has the stability of the dna and the stearing of an alpha in my opinion, its a sweet body and def can replace the alpha in almost every situation.

19T TC:

5 out of 10 in the main

5 out of 10 in the main and 2nd and 3rd place.

Thanks to everyone that used Parma products.

Paul

Ditto to both of you.

I was basically 2 full tenths quicker with the Mohawk over the Alfa and I wasn't slow with the Alfa by any means.

Can't wait for SnowBirds!

It appeared to me that this body only accepts a single color of paint.
