I'm not to sure what good at so-cal. I had the same though when I started racing last year. About the wing. Till I got hacked and got sent into the boards. ripped my wing off(use screws that is supplied not just shoe goo like I did) I could not control the car. So yes it does make a difference.

While many of us would like bodies that look like real race cars and also perform at the highest level in racing, those two characteristics are usually autonomous.

Until then, start with what everyone else runs on asphalt until you can tune your car to behave how you'd like with the bodies you enjoy using. For now, stick with the Protoform Mazda 6 or the Protoform Stratus 3.0 All Purpose. After that, some like the Protoform Cadillac CTS-V and the Protoform Nemesis.
