Default All purpose body & tire ?.

I just bought a used TC4 to give road racing a try. I would most likely do a little carpet & asphalt racing. I would like to have only one body for both. Which body would give me the best over all results on both , also which rubber tires would give the best resultson both ?. I would be using a stock 27t motor or the brushless equivalint Thank you for any help you can give me.

I know the Protoform Mazda 6 is pretty dialed on rubber on carpet and asphalt. I am not sure about tire though.

Default Mazda 6, RP 30s

Protoform Mazda 6 & RP 30 tires- otherwise the Protoform Speed 6 is good and Take-off cs27s or Sorex 36s are a good alternative.

its personal preference on the body, the speed6 is more aggresive (more steering), while the regular 6 is smoother.

for tires i would use jaco green's
