I think the new Parma body is the latest that will be sweeping the nitro touring car ranks. Most racers are using the Stratus 3.1 with a few still using the Mazda 6. All of these are ROAR/IFMAR approved. On the club level, the Nemesis and Cadillac bodies seem to be popular in my neck of the woods.

How about that Protoform Corvette C6-R body? Is anybody using that for club or sanctioned level racing? I think its a great looking body.

May look good but theres nothing like a good touring car body.

Parma Type M
Stratus 3.1
Mazda6

All good choices , but my choice right now would be for stratus 3.1 or the new parma M which ive heard about. From the looks of it , its pretty nice (from what I saw in person).

The stratus is a well balanced body. Easy to drive.

Actually, it can be used in the 200mm outlaw class, if sanctioned at a race. But since 235mm has been killed, that pretty much did away with the outlaw 200mm with Lola bodies.

Yeah I heard the type-m has some good turn in. I guess im going to have to get one here. I thought it looked very similiar to the stratus's new design. They have like these wind channels that go up the a pillar of the bodies.

The type-m has probably the wildest aerodynamic front ive seen. It looks like it was born from a wind tunnel bent on aerodynamics and downforce. The front has this scooping wide flat effect that goes over the wheel wells. Nice work for sure.

Its like that because there are professional body painters out there and they do lights similiar to that.

They arent meant to look real but look aggressive , some make almost faces on the car. Kinda like an eagle glaring. I see some with the angel eyes , those also look pretty cool.

Looks pretty good. I'll try both that and the stratus to see what one I like more.
