Default carpet body?

I have tried the search forum and could not find a good body for carpet?
What I'm using right now is dna1 and i have been out of commission for a couple of years. Any advice would be appreciated.

DNA has too much steering for carpet. Try the PARMA MOHAWK OR PARMA ALFA ROMEO. They are more neutral. You will see a BIG difference.

Well if you are new to tc and you may be beating the car off the wall, go with the .30 because its thicker. However that means it heavier, so it up to how you are going to handle the body.

Go with the thick one. The thin one will not last.

You didn't mention if you're runnin foam tire or rubber tire on the rug... for foam, I'd also recommend the Mohawk2, if you're going to be running rubber, I like the Protofom Mazda 6 a lot.

I would say Mowhawk 2. (In the Thick version) It will last longer. Also i hear the R-9F is a pretty fast body for foam.
