the alfas have taken over the carpet scene. I would go with one of those, as far as which one that is up to you. I like the losi personally.

Adrian: Thanks & I agree with you on the MG....paint it yellow and call it a dump truck.

I might have a Mazda6 this weekend to try out. Keeping up the namesake of Borrowed Bodies Racing

My Strat is trashed. Whoever I got that one from obviously didn't scuff the effing thing! I was woundering why it looked like two shades of white & had an enourmous JEGS sticker on the front when I got it

Ive been running a 300M recently and it has been planted, no problems for me here. I like the Alfa for short and squirt tracks indoors on carpet. I might give the Mazda 6 a try too outdoors.

I like the mazda 6 a lot. It had less push than the stratus, and it just felt more stable.

O Kay, I'm changing my mind. I've always loved the Alpha and thought the mazda 6 was weird and drove twitchy. Well after using the Mazda 6 on tight tracks, I have gotten use to the twitch (which really translates to downforce in front). Both bodies are great, but the Mazda 6 seems a little more planted in the front, making tthe back swing out a little, so I just hooked up the back more with the car.

300m...try Tower Hobbies

I like the rear end grip with the 300m...just not enough balence over the whole car (ie: Feels like a big weight is on the rear spoiler)
