Default Body choice

Guys and gals, got one question.

What would be the best body to use in a track which is semi technical/flowy track with a 36 meter straight?

Was deciding on a Mazda 6 or Alfa 2.0 hopefully you can help me select.

Default mazda 6

Go with the 6, not only does it handle really nice, it also looks way better than the alfa. I don't to me Alfas are some of the ugliest cars made.

I would say it also depends on how your car handle on this particular track for the moment... Do you need a little more steering, do you got a little too much steering etc., etc....

I wish the bodies came with specs on front and rear downforce, maybe in ounces.
With everything being so technical I can see it happening in the future.

All I can say is I'd NEVER reccomend ANYBODY a Stratus 2.0 unless they were using it as a show car. Stratus 2 feels real loose and unstable...If you want a Stratus though, go with the Andy's (i think they still make them, I got mine with an older kit)

yer sorry cant agree there. To be honest the Stratus 2 is a very good bodyshell and thats why sooooo many people use them worldwide.

Personally I would go with the Alfa 2 but i havent tried the Mazda yet

The Black Kat - Not again. The stratus 2.0 is a stable predictable body but it doesn't have the steering of the mazda or the losi. Works great on large tracks.
