Default East Coast Bodies

Could anybody tell me if these bodies is really so good as their advertisement said?
Then which 1 has best handling for competition, among of 5 models?
I think Accord and MS6 are nice, aren't they?
Or only 320i, as the banner said?

Well i dont like them

A) the widow masks leave residue and dont seal around the out side as well the protoform ones do

B) The stickers are just plain junk

C) The leaxn thickness is un even (randomly) and the cutting lines are really hard to see with darker colors

All of that is only IMO

Yes teh window masks are not teh best but the bodies have taken a lot of abuse and havent cracked like the Protoform ones.
I believe they are getting popular in europe and there was more than 50% of the racers at teh TITC using them.

I really like Accord, which is very alike with Ride's Ri196, since said IS250 is better too, then makes me confused.

Anyway, could anybody tell me which of those 3 wings is better to run 23T races on small tracks with tight turns?
