Default Help choosing a Tamiya NSX body

People always say that Tamiya NSX body is one of the best handling scale looking bodies Tamiya makes, but Tamiya made so many different NSX bodies that I'm kinda confused which NSX body people are talking about.....
I heard the IFS only 2007 NSX body is the best but how does the regular NSX bodies compare? I know tamiya makes the following:

Raybrig NSX 2005
Raybrig NSX 2004
Raybrig NSX 2003
2006 Arta NSX

how do they compare in handling characteristics?

I currently run lp560 body with the higher downforce tamiya wing from their gt wing set. the wing improves the stability dramatically and made a undrivable body pretty decent, but think the drag is a bit on the high side. I'm interested to hear from someone who have run this setup too to compare.

also interested in the new nismo r35 gtr, r8 lm, and FXX body. open to suggestions
all help are appreciated!

I have 2004 to 2007 NSX bodies. And speaking from my experience, I think the following might give you a good picture:
1. More Steering: 2004
2. More Stability: 2007
3. More Drag: 2007
4. More Body Roll: 2004

In summary, if you want more steering and straighline speed, use 2004. If you want more stability and corner speed, use 2007. Use 2005 as the balance in between.

I don't have the 2006 but it looks like the same as 2005, just different decal.
