I see...

Well I would have chose the body that's in my pic..."nemesis" until I heard all this positive feedback about the Mazda 6 being better for mod outdoor asphalt.

Guess I need to find another cool pic!...lol

A lot of guys don't bother with the Nemesis since it isn't ROAR legal, so no point in testing or liking it if you can't run it in big races or club races where they follow ROAR rules. If that isn't a concern, then go for it, I don't have feedback though. Just something to consider.

To be ROAR legal, it must be designed after a production car; the Nemesis isn't.

Actually, it must be 2 or 4 door and competed in full size TC events.

Axel:
Losi Alpha has the most downforce, but some claim the Protoform. Either way, they are good for asphalt. The Parma version is for carpet racing and is more neutral with less downforce. Just because they are the same car body model, the shapes are completely different and handle different. If you like the feel of the Alpha, try a Mazda 6. The new Stratus 3.0 is suppose to be good too.
