Default ?? about bodies xxx-s

I am new to Touring cars, and was told by a friend to come here and ask... So here goes...
I would like to run some type of Toyota body (Solara, Camry,orCelica) But my friend then told me about areodynamics and the like. I would still like to get a toyota bod, but what I would like to know is. Where is a good place to get bods?
What is a "fast" bod?
And what do you guys see out there that is a common bod that everyone runs?
I just got this xxx-s and plan to race it at my shop, which doesn't care about roar bods.
I really want a Solara body (since I build them) so let me know what you think about this?
Thanks for your time,
~Smac~

No one that I know of makes a Solara body or Camry.

HPI ( www.hpiracing.com ), makes a nicely detailed Celica body. As you can see, they make sizes 190mm and 200mm. Almost 99% of the time, electric touring cars use 190mm bodies, and nitro powered cars use 200mm bodies. HPI also makes a Supra body.

www.towerhobbies.com carries a lot of great bodies.

The Supras are cool. Trinity makes a Celica body also. The commons right now for bodies for electric touring cars in my area are: Mazda 6, Altima, Cadillac cts, Stratus. I would have to agree with domoiscool, no solara...you can try parma. I think they have odd stuff like mazda millenia, saturn ion, and the lincoln sedan..good luck.

Thanks for the Input guys... I am gonna be racing this thing, so if I can't get a Solara bod oh well. Has anyone seen one by chance?
I work at TMMK in Kentucky and we build them that is why I am interested in one, But the others that were suggested I like too.
As far as racing goes, what characteristics or bod type should I be looking for?
I appreciate all the input that I can get.
Thanks,
~Smac3n4~
