The upper body you posted is Protoform's Mazdaspeed6
The lower is from Hot Bodies.

The Mazda Speed 6 is another option by Protoform to add to the already successful Mazda 6. Slightly different in characteristics from each other. The Moorespeed is a made by Hot Bodies and is basically a knock off of the Mazda 6 (not speed 6).

The most obvious difference when you look close at the two of them is the Speed 6 has a more intricate nose than the regular 6 and a lot more surface area. There's a lot of other subtle differences too. It's got a lot more steering but it's not from a lack of rear grip like some bodies. Lots of steering and still stable in the rear. I've really liked it a lot.

I don't think so. Too much going on this summer. Wish I could though. The track sounds a lot like the one we've got down here now. Small and tight.

i think dale from protoform says that it aids in straight line speed and doesnt decrease rear end grip so it is a good thing to do, but i dont know what peoples experiences are with doing it
