HPI Germany did some tests with HPI bodies.
First the HPI Stratus (190mm) itīs not to bad, good downforce 8 out of 10 points. Lotīs of steering into the corner and a little understeer in the corner. Very direct steering. I think in compare to the Protoform Stratus itīs much more aggresive. Was my first Stratus and I did like it very much that time but never tried it with my current cars.

The HPI Saleen (200 mm) wasnīt very good in every point. Lot of understeer not very much rear grip also. Not very much downforce overall 4-5 points out of 10 only. Difficult to drive.

Best bodies overall were the Lamborghini Diablo and Murcielago.

Hope this helps.
