Considering the r32 skyline body
I have used 3 different GT bodies in 21.5 that perform quite well to the TC bodies.
The first was a Tamiya Petronas Syntium Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3
I did trim down the large splitter on the front of the shell, and used a TC rear wing instead of the body supplied one.
Next is the HPI Greddy twin turbo 350Z
I used the included black plastic rear wing and gave good performance.
Am currently using a Protoform Camaro ZL1, and with the included wing it has a nice neutral feeling about it, one of my fellow club members also loves the body, and how it handles.
As for being as quick or slower against the TC body cars in 21.5, I believe 50% of the difference is between car setup, and driver skill, with the rest being tire choice, & equipment.
