If you run the same tire all the way around Like RP30's. I would go with the Mazda6 But slower in the straights. The wing is taller gives better traction to the rear.

If you run lets say 27 rear and 30 front, I would run the parma alfa. It rotates the corners better. And has a shorter wing which will help in long straights. Those two would be my preference. The parma alfa is probably an all round better choice.

down here the bodies of choice are the mazda 6 and the Parma Type M.if you are running on a parking lot,chances are traction will suck and the Mazda 6 will work best.the Type M is a little more free in the rear and gives more steering for higher bite tracks.if you have real high bite asphalt then you can run some of the carpet bodies like the alpha but you wont get away with that under average asphalt traction conditions.

The DNA and Alpha are poor choices for asphalt racing. They are designed for carpet and will not give you enough steering and traction.

Personally I'm not happy with the DNA2. My favorite asphalt body by far is the Mazda Speed 6. Before that it was the original Mazda 6.
