I would give the Parma M-Type and the Parma GBS a try as well.

Here is the list from most steering to least steering...

Protoform R9R
Protoform LTC-R
Protoform Mazda speed 6
Protoform Mazda 6

If you are running 13.5 or slower I would run the Mazda speed 6. Mod run the LTC-R.

Lightweight is about 15-20g lighter but A LOT weaker. Use regular, not lightweight if you don't have to save that little weight. Regular body can last more than 10 races, lightweight maybe only a few if you get some bad hits.

Mazda Speed 6 (Proline / Protoform) should be a good allrounder.
