Default Which body?

Which body should I use?, if I am racing rubber tires on a local hobbytown parking lot track.

Input what the different characteristics of the bodies.

I am not to sure what to use.

what car? it does play into the equation somewhat. Basically as a general rule ya want a Mazda 6 or a DNA for Higher bite situations...also the Parma Type M body is VERY good.

I was thinking of the DNA2, does the regular DNA work with rubber tires? or are the wheel wells to small.

ye it should run well. although it mite be worth trying the dna 2 as it was made for rubbers but since i have only raced the regular i would go with that
