Default What RC Body do you prefer?

All I have ever used on both my XXX-S and my TC3 are the Proline Stratus and Stratus 2.0 and they seem to work great, but I'm always looking for an edge.

Any other recommendations on your experiences with other bodies? Good or bad?

The Losi Alfa body is very aggressive, yet very thin. It wears faster than the Protoform bodies.

the new losi alfa body, wil be good in corners but also wil be very fast down the straights. they have made it so that the rear wing folds down at high speeds and creates lees drag

me personaly at the moment i am using a chrysler 300m

it really depends on the track

stratus, stratus2, alfa, 300m
they are all good

I use a lot of the Protoform bodies
300M
Stratus
Stratus 2.0

But I just started to use the new Yokomo Type D (Looks like the 2.0 ) Handles really cloes to the 2.0 but has a more aggressive rear wing...and has a little bit thiner body

the optimum shell is the Yokomo/Andy's dodge stratus
Told ya!

That's now the "Trinity Andy's Stratus". It has an official name, but I can't remember it right off. "Carpet Y Sedan" , or something.
