I run the MTX4r and the RRR,and use all three bodies, but always go back to the Sratus 3.1

The Protoform Stratus 3.1 is the body that works in most track conditions and in my opinion, pretty neutral all around. Good amount of front steering and good stability.

I know you mentioned you're partial with Protoform but just for the sake of having another choice of a Touring Car body, it would be the Civic Central Body, IMO.

Stratus 3.1, Civic (if you can find it) or Altis all seem to work. But it's very hard to go wrong with that Stratus.

Default Stratus 3.1

I have tried the stratus 3.1, east civic and altis 2.3.

+1 for the stratus 3.1. Most stable, easy to drive and stable of them all. I get faster lap times with the stratus 3.1 too. I run mainly on a large flowing track.

the altis 2.3 is a close second for me. You gain some more steering at the expense of rear end grip for the altis 2.3.

You can't go wrong with a Stratus but I love being different. I use a Type M.

For low grip and short tracks, Protoform DNA 3.0 was my favourite this summer. It's amazing how much downforce this body has.
For longer flowing tracks, Proto Stratus 3.1 (more stable) or Blitz Altis 2.3 (more aggressive).
