Default Popular bodies...

I'm a little out of the loop in TC racing since I've been running 1/12th and T/A. I recently met a painter that's interested in doing some RC bodies and I told him I'd get him a body or two for him to paint to show off his skills. I'll get him a 1/12th scale that I can use but I'd also like to get him a touring or offroad body. The offroad or touring body won't be of much use to me so I'd like to at least be able to sell it for the cost of the body and the shipping once he's done and I get some photos.

In short, what are a few of the more popular bodies for off road and what's the hot ticket in TC right now? I don't want to be stcuk with a body that I can't sell and is of no use to me... I know the Mazda 6 is popular but what about a couple others? Should I have him paint a 200mm body for TC since things are warming up in the northern states?

Thanks,
Ike

Ike,

My suggestion for TC is sticking with the PF Mazda 6, then PF Mazda speed 6, then PF DNA 2. I say this because of the primary reason you posted and that's most people will be getting their outdoor cars ready soon. The Mazda 6 is also a good carpet rubber car also. That's why its the safest bet to have painted. Parma makes some good bodies too.

Thanks, exactly what I needed! I'll just pick up a good ole Mazda 6 and hopefully it's so nice I won't want to sell it even though it's if limited use to me. If it's not great then hopefully someone will be feeling lazy and I can sell it for at least the cost of the body and materials.
