I prefer the HPI stratus (the original not the aero 2) I have always had the best handling on carpet and asphalt with it.

Just my 2 pesos

Haven't tried it myself, but I have heard that the Protoform crysler 300m is a great medium - low downforce body

If you stay off the rails they last just as long.
If you are just a novice or hit alot stay with the Protoforms.
