The Mazda 6 body is popular now. And there is always the Losi Alfa which is also very popular.

Did you mean what bodies are "legal"? If so, here is the list from the ROAR site.

Pretty much all I see at our track is Stratus, Mazda 6, and Alfa.

Hows the handling of the new CTS? What can you compare it to?

Most consider the Cadi to push quite a bit, making it more neutral but takes away stearing.

I found that compared to a Parma Alfa, or Stratus 3.0, the Caddy is dead turning in, but seems to rotate very hard, and push a bit on exit. Sorta the opposite feeling I got from the Stratus 2.0. I find it most like the Proto Alfa, albeit with less turn-in.

All that is irrelevant though, as the Parma Alfa is still the best body out there......

For carpet. I've only seen a handfull of people run it out here on asphalt out doors. And those that did didn't think the world of it. I'm sure it's strapped on carpet, everyone runs it. But not on all surfaces.

Very true, I guess we forgot that since all we have to race on is the rug! Mazda 6 is still a tough one to beat outside! (or so I hear!!LOL)

Actually you might remember Pulfer and I handing it to you guys on asphalt with Parma Alfa strapped on our rides. Maybe it doesn't work with rubber tires, I couldn't tell you since we run foams on asphalt too.

Rubber tires are for buggies and Monster Trucks.
