Default What is the best 1/10 TC body?

What is the best body for outdoor use on asphalt with a 1/10 touring car?

Alot of people run the mazda 6 and it works for me, as does the protoform nemesis. BUT WHAT IS TRULY THE BEST BODY?

There isn't a best body. Only different characteristics. Best downforce, best steering, most neutral, most balanced, most mid corner steering, best detail, best scale, legal, not legal, etc. Pick your need.

For asphalt racing the Mazda 626. Better then the recently released 626 Speed and DNA 2.

For ashalt, I run the Acura NSX body. Aerodynamic as hell, the car cuts through the wind like a hot knife through soft butter.

Can't go wrong with the following:

Protoform Mazda 6
Protoform Mazda Speed 6
Protoform DNA 2
PARMA M-Type

Ride also makes some very good bodies as well as the Andy Moore edition body by Hotbodies.

These are all extremely good bodies for rubber tire asphalt.

Later,

for outdoor rubber i go for the Mazda6 and Stratus 3.0 AP, due to the more calm and neutral handling.

For rubber tire asphalt:

Protoform Mazda 6: Stable .
Protoform Stratus 3 AP: Less stable, but you will have more steering.

Greetings Victor
