I've been using the Speed 12 on mine for asphault and really liking it. The cool thing is it fits on this car better then most because the rear pod is so low.

for carpet here is what I found:

speed 12: this is my prefered body, it give plenty of steering and also plants the rear end. I don't like a loose rear.

speed 12b: verys similar to the 12 as far as steering, but the rear end would "Float" quite a bit in the corners. some like that feel, I don't

speed 8: This body was just as fast for me as the speed 12. Lap for lap, I was just as consistent and really did not find a lap time difference. The problem for me was that it seamed to plant the rear end too much. the car seam to steer from the rear tires, and I like my cars to steer on their nose. I need to work on the setup on the car a little more and maybe get it to work better with the added rear tracktion of this body. maybe goto a yellow rear from a gray.

Speed 8HD: I have not run this body, i have a couple I need to paint up and try. I suspect based on the name, that it will be too planted for stock.

I switched to the Speed 8 and found it to feel better than the Speed 12. Picked up a lot of steering. My personal preference is the LW speed 8 but the longevity is questionable.

I'm going to have to stop letting people try my car out though. I put a new brushless system into my car this evening and it drove nice. I let another driver try it and he promptly broke a flex plate. I've only had the car since it came out and never broke a flex plate. Let someone else drive it and it breaks on the first lap.

I guess I'll run my DB12 t-bat car until I get some new flex plates

Depends on the carpet. If it's GT, then I prefer Parma, if it's Duo I prefer Jaco. HTH
