Default Protoform vs Blitz vs Kawahara... Which one do you prefer?

I would like to know what most drivers preffer to use out these body manufacturers (Blitz-Protoform-Kawahara). You can relate your answers to aerodynamics, durability, looks, quality, and etc..

Personally I have only had experience with Blitz Alfa Romeo 200mm. I kinda like it and so does a few others at track. Haven't had the chance to use the new Blitz Altis(Heard it rocks), but I would really like to get your feedback..

Thanks

The Blitz 03 body is by far my favourite, but i am also a big fan of the Mugen "whip" and the Parma R10.
I think the new (legal) Blitz is due out soon.

I think above most people are reffering to 1/10th scale.

Although it's very clear that all you guys are blitz owners(including myself), but has anyone tried the Kawahara IS250?? I keep seeing a lot pros dumping their protofoms and picking up Kawa's..

Besides, any pros using Blitz bodies. I'd really like to know who and which body in particular..??

Well, I have been using the Protoform Stratus 3.0 body and I like the way how it feels I just got my Blitz Altis 2.0 body and will be trying it out. According to the local dealer, the Altis 2.0 body has lots of steering
