Last weekend I ran an hpi supra and after my first tank was done I was wishing for my protoform mazda or stratus or dna because though the hpi bodys look good they don't handle the same at all. With the supra body on I was really bashing any and every car I cmae to run with though I was NOT trying to smack their a$$es. With the protoform you will have a lot more turning control and for me strait line improves as well. Hope this helps. Hpi=shelf queen
Protoform=race car

Subaru body is not bad as far as hpi boddies, but T.B. is right, the protoform or dna bodies have better downforce for handiling. If your not racing comp. on the track the subaru lookes better and is great for parking lot bashing

Yeah the suburu looks cool just don't get the rally one. Everybody gets that one..check out the touring car one I don't remember the part number but it looks like the 2008 sti. That is one I will be doing in the next month or so.
