Default 200 mm body

Hey guys
I am quite tired of the good ol' Stratus body

has anyone tried any other bodies that are just as good?.. e.g , HPI bodies?

I am looking for a new body which has a great balance and at the same time, looks nice

There are other bodies made by Proline/Protoform other than the stratus body. I like the PL/PF bodies because they are a little stiffer than the HPI bodies. And if you are driving a TC3, the HPI bodies are not moulded for the TC3 wheelbase and don't fit right on the TC3.

but hte thing with proline/ protoform bodies is that they all look quite the same?... (maybe thats the only shape that works best?)
HPI bodies have other cool bodies such as the RX7, NSX, Porsche...etc...

I've tried the kyosho nsx and it works good. Lots of front and rear downforce. The new hpi nsx looks to be very similar as well.

I've tried the opel astra made by protoform, plenty of rear downforce and turns tight in and out of corners, the volvo s60, stable as a stratus but tends to push out of the corners, and finaly decide to ditch my sedan bodies and put a lola on my mtx 3, the best handling body while increasing top speed.
