The Blitz TSX is a great body. Ran it on carpet/high traction. It's similar to the Mazda 6. The Blitz GSF is also a good body. A little bit more steering than the TSX. I prefer the Blitz bodies over Protoform because of the quality of the mold. Was going to give the Dodge Dart Lightweight a try but once AGAIN the cab wasn't centered....I'm a bit OCD and can't stand how something so important to the handling of the car can be over looked. Not to mention spending the time painting and cutting one out to find that the cab is offset to one side by 3 or 4 mils. Will not use another Protoform body again. Blitz bodies come in 3 different thicknesses and are more durable. I usually go with 0.7 thickness with the high down force wing. The wing is a little bit thicker plastic and is necessary with the Lighter weight bodies for good stability. Haven't used the Nazda but have a few friends that like them a lot.

Can now add the Montech Silvy and Evo.
The Silvy appeared to give slightly more entry steering than my Nazda 3 (my 'go to' outdoor bodyshell) and was easy to drive, but need to compare against my Nazda 4 to see if I've found something similar to the LTC2.0

Evo felt very stable and had slightly less steering than the Nazda 3.
It's quite long, with a big rear overhang and has a bootlip spoiler built in, so perhaps a more flexible wing would improve things (I ran MR33 wings on the Montech bodies)

And another...

Montech Stratus. On a fast open track it gave more steering than the Silvy but was still very stable. Will be trying it on my home track this weekend, which is much smaller and tighter.

It was pointed out to me that it is very similar in design to the LTC-R.

+1 on the Blitz bodies. I run TSX, LSF and GSF. The LSF is my current preference outdoors on asphalt. I think GSF or TSX indoors for me.

For more steering the protoform LTC-R is the weapon of choice.

Cool thread. I often wondered how various PF bodies compare.

Hi has anyone tried the Protoform PFM-10 and would this be legal in most normal level TC races, or only for classes like USGT? How would it compare handling wise to some of the mentioned shells?

Pretty sure that's only for USGT, as it's not a touring car body.
