Default Car Shells

Hey people, just wondering if anyone has used either one of these shells and could tell me what u think of them.

Alfa Romeo 2.1
Vauxhall Astra BTCC

I have used the Stratus 2.1 and the Chrysler 300M so far but just want 2 try something different.

Thanx in advance

I think I have used like almost all the shells, can imagine how bad my driving was!!!

Alfa 156 v2.1 - really stable, akin to the Stratus original, I did not know it was a Championship winning shell when I bought it. If you were to look at the new shell dimension is it so much like the Stratus.

Vauxhall - might be my next shell ... I love the colours of the BTCC car.

The alpha 2.1 has more initial turn-in and transitions faster than either stratus, and yet it is quite stable unlike the original version of the alpha. I'd suggest it as it works very well, but I still have my stratus bodies with me if I want less turn-in steering, because the Alpha 2.1 can sometimes be too aggressive entering a corner.

And the astra, you need to lop off much of the plastic from the wing mounts or else you'll end up with too much push... or so I felt. Plus the wing mounts cause the wing to look way out of place hanging way above the roofline and subsequently illegal if your track cares about the rules.
