Default What body to use?

Let me hear your opinion on recommended bodies for a tight carpet track with medium to high bite and for a medium bite asphalt track?

I like to use the Protoform LTC-R for those two types of tracks but I want to hear your choices so that I can try a new body for my touring car.

I know the LTC-R is faster, but I like the Mazda Speed 6 on it's looks. Also nice to have on the more technical parts of the track.

Tight, technical carpet track with decent bite - MazdaSpeed 6 all the way. Good balance & downforce, maybe a little more drag than the LTC but who cares, at least the 6 is based on a real car.

What about P37 or R-9 from Protoform ?

I've also seen some 190mm bodies made by Blitz (ISF, ISF 2.1, RS5). Has anyone tried them out ?

Does it really matter if they are based on real cars? I mean what platform is the car under the lid based on...? I guess that's why we call them toy cars.
