I assume the thicker = rear more planted?

Between The WRX, ALS and GSF which body has the most similar characteristics as a Mazda Speed?

ALS imo. WRX is more like LTCR. GSF is higher downforce/more planted than ms6.

The GSF would be the most similar:

Correct to a point. I have been having the best luck running the gsf(0.5mm) body with the protoform light weight(0.025") rear wing/aluminum wing screws+plastic nuts...The total body weight is now 62grams instead of 60grams with a 0.5mm wing, but the rear is alot more planted....

That chart shows the gsf as having the most downforce. The MS6 is a low downforce body.

The question asked for the most similar. Looking at all of its characteristics, out of the bodies given, it would be the most similar.



The ALS-R shares only a low downforce feature. The similarities stop there. I've used both bodies (MS6 and ALS-R). The ALS-R has aggressive steering and transitions quickly. The MS6 is just the opposite in that its more neutral and stable, if anything.

Default MS6 - like Blitz body

I really don't think any of the Blitz line up would be legitimately similar to the MS6. The XFR would actually be the closest but it actually has less steering and downforce than the MS6. The Volt would be another but it rotates better and has slightly more steering than the MS6, sharing similar downforce characteristics,mainly. The LSF has more downforce and steering than the MS6. SO, looking for something similar would require the user to decide which attributes they want or don't want.

The alsr is any interesting body. I have used a few of them. It does transition quickly but i wouldn't call it a "steering" body since the rear is really planted compared to the front.
The gsf (I've also gone through a few of them) is indeed neutral as well, but is a lot more stuck in general since it creates a lot of downforce. I really liked the gsf on grey carpet but experienced more grip rolling with it on black carpet. I've never grip rolled an alsr though.
I have not used an xfr but on paper, it does look quite similar to ms6.
I no longer use blitz bodies though. I now use bittydesign m410 and nardo, montech is200, and sweep stc6 ultralight.

When running the 0.5 LW bodies do you guys use the 0.5 wing also or a stiffer one?

Btw. I'm currently using the GSF & GSF-2 on a technical outdoor track right now, they run pretty good The GSF-2 seems to be lighter tho.

What wing do you use? For the LSF 0.5 I would like to try out the 0.8mm from my GSF-2 or GSF.

Default Wings to go..

I think the 0.5mm wings are very thin and have too much flex. I use 0.7mm / 0.8mm or the 1.0mm wing.
