Default HPI BMW M3 GTR 190mm body

I was wondering whether this is a decent body for stock racing. I am not interested in winning the worlds but just being competetive at my local track.
If anyone is running one, please let me know your thoughts.
Also, is there anywhere I can get info on which bodies work best.
Thanks for any input.

Easiest thing to do is find out what the fast guys are running at your local track. Mazda 6 and Alfa are very popular. Cadillac if you want more front downforce

The BMW GTR is a nice lid. However I felt it had more drag then beneficial down force. I switched to the Protoform stratus 2.0 and I was much happier.
