To me, the Protoform 3.1 stratus works the best... If traction is low, the Protoform ____DNA________ is good for providing more steering but is about a half a second slower than the stratus.

I currently use ride mk3. The body is good in terms of balance. The problem is that it breaks so easily coz the plastic is thin.

I have found just the opposite with respect to the handling characteristics. If you are loose, the DNA always tightens up the car. Strange.

For tight technical tracks i like the Blitz Altis and Mazda3 with the Mazda3 a bit more stabil.
For a faster flowing tracks the Mazda 6 or TC (stratus) works great with teh TC more planted.The B5 also works very well with a lot more stability on teh straight and and balanced in teh corners.
Bodies also seem to be a bit tougher than the Protoform ones.

I'm using the Blitz Altis 2.3 for while now. At my home track, a combination of fast flowing corners and some technical slow corners this body works well for me. I believe the Altis 2.3 has a little more steering in the slow corners compared to the Stratus 3.1 using the same car setup for both bodies.

Further, I made a nasty crash last week because a car in front of me accidentally spun around and I crashed into it hard, but luckily I didn't found any cracks in my body! It seems to be strong!
