its very hard to say what the "best" is but you can't go wrong with any of the protoform bodies, they have rubber specific ones marked in "R". I use a LTC-R for rubber racing and DODGE stratus for indoor foam racing.

I would have to agree. Protoform is the best choice. I would recommend getting 2 bodies. Get a LTC-R and a Mazda speed 6. This will cover you for any track. After that it is personal preference.

You can't go wrong with the Protoform Mazda 6. It is a very well balanced body. From there you can look at the Speed6, LTC-R, R9-R, etc to gain some steering if necessary. I always try the new bodies when they come out and always seem to end up back at the Mazda 6.

Is a Mazda that much better than a Stratus ( I think that's Dodge, by the way, not Ford) on carpet, low grip? Which of the million (mazda speed, mazda 6, LW, etc) versions is that?

Perhaps he has some inside knowledge of a Ford takeover of Dodge. Could happen I guess.

Protoform Mazda 6 but if more steering is needed or if your a more aggressive driver then the Mazda Speed 6. I haven't tried the R9R but i have seen it and it looks very nice as well.

When FORD buying Chyslar next month...then it will be FORD Stratus and FORD Charger/Magnum/300C....

For outdoor...yeah, Speed6 or any Mazda 6...mostly used (I think that is a better term to use in this case)

Thumbs down

Where can I buy the cheapest protoplast form vehicle bodywork?
here in Sweden so the costs of a body about 40.34 USD .. on it, I do not think so, so cheap. Some tips? to buy 2 pcs bodywork for 80.68 USD is not attractive. : S but otherwise it is needed.

Thanks for the tips!

Zooberg, check if anyone in Europe stocks Frewer bodies. They're made in NewZealand, but I remember I saw them online in Europe some time ago. These are almost as good as Proline/Protoform, but should be a bit cheaper.

If all else fails, just buy something online from Hong Kong they're pretty cheap there (about 20-25US$ plus shipping). With the Euro now standing as it is, it should come cheaper to you.
