Are you asking which is the best 150mm body for racing, Aku-Man? If so, then I'd recommend the HPI Corvette, & I also like ProLine's Ferrari F360 Modena(work fine with the HPI molded wing on it).....

Well the Bimmers did handle pretty well here locally. They are in my opinion better for tight turns compare to Corvettes that is better for open track. Its a matter of how the driver drive and how the setup matched the track.

All of the 150MM RAD bodies are very good handling. Look them up at http://www.microrcshop.com. I used the DTM.

Default 150 mm bodies

ARM's Toyota and Porsche GT bodies are the best for racing... imho.

The Skyline's ok, but it's not as wide as I'd like. That's what my first micro came with, & while it was decent, I still think that the 'Vette handles better. And as I said, I've also been using the Ferrari 360 Modena shell that came with my new XRay M-18, & I really like that one too(but since it's on a different chassis, it's hard to make a direct comparison).......
