Dont know what body to race in winds. But wear eye protection so stuff doesnt fly into ur eye then you wont crash ur ride.

I used to race in the wind a bit. Try to find a nice stable body, I think a Stratus 3.0 would work well. The goal is to get the car really stable when it gets gusty so the car doesnt do anything strange. I found my basic setup + a front sway bar and 10 wt thicker front oil helped to keep the front end from doing anything unpredictable in the gusts.
