Default 1/12th Scale Bodies? What's Popular?

Hello all,

Looks like I'll be getting into 12th scale! Just wondering if you guys can give me some car body choices? Just seeing what's popular and what works. I'll be running Outdoor.... asphalt. seems like it's a medium grip track. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks

The king of bodies for outdoor 1/12th is the standard Protoform Speed 12 (Not the Speed 12B).

The Parma Speed 8HD seems to be really good too.

I really liked the Parma speed 8HD body. Thats mainly what I used when I ran 1/12th scale.

The Protoform and Parma both have a nice feel, and I think the Parma might be a touch more aggressive in the turns. I run Protoform sstandard speed 12on everything because they last 3 times as long in my opinion, and have a great balanced feel.
