The one that fits your car...

Honestly, if your asking, you probably won't feel a difference anyway...

Pick the one that appeals to you.

A "fast" "new" body probably won't help your laptimes unless you are experienced.

Don't believe any aerodynamic myth. The aero effect will only start to work on your car when you run your car over 40mph. You may run very fast motor so that you can speed your car up to 60mph, but you also need to think about how many corners on the track. Can you turn into a corner in 40 mph? If not then just choose whatever body you like. One thing that you may want to take into account is the weight, the lighter the better. But again if you are not a top racer, you will not be able to feel that few grams difference.

I call BS
I can feel the difference and see the lap time differences between bodies... bodies are another tuning option to use to your advantage

I call bs, have you lost a wing in a final? car is suddenly loose as hell everywhere. You also mean to tell me that aero grip doesn't exist in the dodge viper GTS-R that I prepare at work? LOL
