I don't think there is "ONE" or even "FIVE" bodies out there you could call the best.

The A main at the shootout had several different styles.

Just from memory there was two NSX's, a Lambo, SC430, Vauxhall Astra, Toyota MRS and more.

Pick your favorite car and go with it!

there are so many different bodies to choose from... pick one you like... and run it thats the fun thing about RCGT, with 17.5/lipos and similar tires... adjusting your car set up to your needs will give you the edge.

btw... the top 8 of expert RCGT at the finale were separated by 2 seconds. with so many variables (motor, tire compound, esc, even car type (shaft vs. belt)... the racing was still very close

pick one, make it look realistic..... have fun.

If there was a "best" RCGT body they would outlaw it. That's the point of the body rules. You pick the body for the look not how well it works.

The Lambo is awesome!

Before RCGT even existed, I ran Tamiya's Ferrari 360GT body on my modified TC and thoght it worked very well - not that much slower than a TC body. But the best part is that it looked like the real thing.
