I finally gave the Mazda 6 a run. It's one of the best bodies I've used so far. Very stable, planted, and easy to drive. Kind of like a mix between the agressive turning of a Losi Alfa and stability of a Stratus 2.0 Good stuff.

I'm going to be trying the Alpha 2 next race. I hated the Losi Lexus. I could not get that thing to hook up. I ran it twice and had horrible runs. Put the Stratus 2.0 on, and was planted. I now have a Alpha 2.0, Stratus 2.0, and a Losi Alpha so I can do some side by side testing. Should be interesting.

Default protoform 156

Ive been running the latest alfa 156 and it seem really stable in a straight line, but i didnt use the old 156 so i cant compare.

The top bodies at snowbirds were

Losi Alpha
Protoform Alpha
Parma Alpha
Losi Skoda
Trinity Peugot
Protoform Mazda 6


I am sure there was some stratus bodies out there, just don't remember seeing any in the upper mains.

They were selling the new trinity body for like $15 at the trinity booth, I bought a few of them....not sure if its available through hobby shops yet.

The protoform mg is out, but its not really designed for carpet, more of a high speed outdoor body. I have some, were gonne try them out here shortly.

At 1 of the Sydney, Australia clubs we have started running a 19t class allowing sports/Gt style bodies. I run a Ford GT40 and find it a very neutral body, handling is not far from a normal sedan, i also run the rear wing in a mid angle position. The other racers have used normal touring car bodies and there really isnt that much between them. I reckon it is the best sports/GT body on the market.

Parma's MG is excellent, just a bit more downforce everywhere than a Proto Stratus, seems to carry a bit more corner speed than A stratus 2.0. and way better looking than both.
