Stratus feels more nimble and can change direction quicker.

Mazda more stable feeling.

This is what I felt today on the track with the same setup and tire.

I know this doesn't mean much but at the Express race this weekend we only got 1 round in but the new Parma body held the top 3 spots in stock. The body works awesome.

I've sorta put TC to the side for 12th but as for shells-

Ran a carpet stratus on pavement and I liked it, to me almost felt like the nimble feeling of the AP but a bit easier-going like the M6. I like the way it looks alot too with the different hood line. Worth a try .

Better than the Alfa or the G6, I could run a harder compound tire than what my buddys could..That gave me more corner speed. I never did tell them it was the body..

would this apply to running on asphalt? the track here is pretty flat and smooth... not as much traction as carpet i would likewise guess.

Were you running foams or rubbers? I might try this out as I have a Nemesis body lying around.
