Default WHAT BODYS HANDLE WELL FROM HPI IN 200MM???

Hey im doing a new body and I need input on what works and what dosnt. I've got 2 pf mazda 6, 2 pf stratus ,and dna3.0. I want a hpi shell since im not racing with a club or anything like that. Mainly for looks but I can't have my mugen turning like my maxx. Just give me some names of bodys that look good and work good too.

The mazda 6 and the dodge stratus, both from pro line are good shells i have used both. The mazda probably has a bit more steering than the dodge but the dodge feels more stable at higher speeds and cornering IMO

The DNA3.0 apparently is a good shell that a lot of electric guys use, i've never seen a DNA on a nitro car before but that's not to say there aren't any. Not sure what they are like performance wise.

Another good one that a lot of people are using here in OZ with great results is the Team Titan Blitz Altis 2.0. Looks to me like an all round performer

Hope this helps

the Maz 6 and Status 3.1 bodies are great bodies I thoght the both handles about the same

Dna 3.0 I found worked really good on smaller tracks (100x60)

I have not tried the blitz bodise yet but hear they are great
another one that is a nice handling body is the East Honda civic body ( i think thats the name) that is my next body i'm going to get

Thanks for the input guys. Even though I still have no clue which im gonna do I know it will stand out from the crowd whatever it is. LT280z this body is for my mugen whitch was crashed a while back and I just got another one so gotta hook this thing up like free cable tv.The vette is my drifter which drifted into a concrete light pole which in turn put a big a$$ crack in one of the rear wells. Am gonna do a m3 or m6 if I can find one.

That was my very first body, a honda civic by east coast body tune. Yeah it did handle pretty good but sort of looks the same as all the other 200mm bodies out there though
