This is how I rate them. Number also equates to what I rate them. I think the parma type-m is the best with mazda coming in at third.

1. Parma Type-M (solid all around)
2. Proto Stratus 3.1 (stable , easy drive , smooth)
3. Proto Mazda 6 (bit more darty , little less rear traction so the tail can slide some)

There might be some newer bodies out there , but I havent tried them. Ive heard some good things about blitz bodies and kawahara bodies. I think kawahara has a newer body. But it seems the latest bodies , the 3.1 and type-m have some design cues which clue you in on why they perform so well. Channel in the hood , the type-m has a dual wing effect with its nascar profiled rear trunk wing , then you get the touring wing on top for what seems to me has the best rear traction Ive tried. With an agressive front to match.

It also looks good too.

Have you tried the parma-m yet? Im wondering who else has. I thought the parma-m was a bit better. But the 3.1 is good. Im about to mount another body and I think im going to stick with the parma-m. Has anyone else tried it vs any of the other bodies out there , let me know your results.

I'm thinking the parma m also.......its hard to belive nothing new has come out in a year,in fact,alot of bodies have been discontinued...

somehow I feel as of I am missing a body somewhere....didn't someone intro a body(last year) other than the M from parma and the proto bodies that was supposed to be really nice?

I am using a kawahara body the come with my MTX4, it is by far the best I've use. it handle great and very durable in design. it holds impact much better than Proline body.

Just got another one(labelled Zac Audi by RC nitro Nation but it look identical to the one label Lexus IS by The-Border) during my visit to RCX as spare although I might not need it

I also feel the same about the Parma M-type. Great body.
