Default "Best" touring car bodies out there currently?

Just getting back into the scene after 10 years of being out of it, looking for a new body. Figured I'd ask what the top bodies are that people/pros are running currently.

Get one ZooRacing Dogsbollox and be done with it. It's extremely fast and well balanced. Most of the pros are running this body. Depending on what your usual store have in stock, you can also get an Xtreme Twister. It's a copy of the dogsbollox.

I like the Twister, Turismo, and Dogs.

Zoo dogsbolloxs med/high grip and maybe baybee for low grip/wet
and if tons of grip the twister as it痴 the zoo dogsbolloxs but little more edgy

but zoo dogsbolloxs works in all grip/weather conditions

I知 pretty set on the Twister,
this might sound like a stupid question.

I知 pretty stuck between 0.5 and 0.7, sure the 0.5 has better performance I知 assuming but how fragile is it truly? I致e had people say if you touch anything the body is nuked, others are saying they池e durable. So I知 really stuck in the middle.

It is.
Isn't Twister a simple copy of Dogs?

I tried the hyper way too much steering and it tend to over rotate.

It is, however weirdly enough I've heard better things about the twister than the Dogs. Personally don't have experience with either but sounds like the Twister has the edge.

I've heard about this, Were you testing on Carpet or asphalt if you don't mind me asking?

This has not been my experience. Granted I have only extensively used the turismo and hyper. I mount the hyper +3mm for carpet and +6mm on asphalt. The hyper feels a bit more balanced over the turismo.

I tried the hyper on asphalt running mod TC way too much entry and exit steering It made the car very un-stable

I've also tried testing on asphalt and there were no problems.

I really like the ProtoForm Turismo, mounted about 6-8mm forward with the stock wing centered. The X-Lite is 58-62g depending on paint.

Pretty much all of the new style LCG/high downforce bodies are better than anything from a couple years ago. On carpet anyways...

You'll need to try a couple to find what you like. They all feel different on track.
