Default TC Body Comparision - Mazda 6, Mazda Speed, Ride RI196 TSX, Alex Racing LX-250

Looking for recommendations or feedback on any or all of the following 1/10 scale asphalt TC bodies. I have been running the Mazada 6 body in 19T asphalt for quite some time, but some of these newer bodies look good, I am starting to think it is time for a change.

have not used any of those bodies,

I have been running the Excel stratus 2 and Accord 2 for quite a while, usually in 27T/23T/19T classes,

I like the Stratus 2 with the curved hard wing, for most situations and where the car has a fairly balanced setup,

and the Accord with the straight hard wing where maximum overall downforce is needed,

It all comes down to driving style. I know guys that like the Mazda 6 in foam stock TC racing, when that body is designed for rubbers.

I've been running mazda 6 for long time. I tried the new mazda speed this past weekend it pretty much handles the same but with the smaller wing my car tend to slide a bit on high speed corners.
