In the UK Tamiya races, most people run with the 360.

see.... for me i find the toyota altezza slightly too top heavy. the roof line is way too high! the corvette is ok but the front end is way too long! it can tend to flop around... the 360 (lightweight) is my favorite choice and then the skyline. lower profile bodies are my choice

Although i haven't had experience with most of the bodies you list, I Run a Kure Skyline GTR Body. Of the bodies I own I find the Skyline has great handling. It does have a fair amount of downforce due to its fairly substantial wing which some may see as good and others bad. I like the solid handling of the Skyline and I find it helps keep the back end very tidy around corners...

The guys at our track with the best working Tamiya cars are running the Skyline. It seems to have the best balance of steering and traction. The cars seem to be very neutral.
