I have a mazda 6!

Nice looking body and i was told to try it out on our race track!

It performs really well!

Good downforce and the wing works great going around corners!

I recommend it!

Not sure about the other ones!

I've actually read some information about the nemissis and from what i have heard it sounds like a fantastic body. I'm going to go buy one in the next 2 weeks!

I ran the mazda 6, the Parma Alfa and the Caddy this weekend at the Paris race. My two fastest runs were with the Caddy. As a reference point, I tq'd the first two rounds of quals and I don't think I ever finished lower than 4th in any given round. We ran 5 rounds and I used the Mazda twice, the Caddy twice and the Alfa once. All my runs were within 6 seconds of each other.

yup
but i still have some favoritism for the ALFA havent tried the six yet but i did use the nemesis. The difference i see with the alfa is because the wing is situated far further down the car compared to the two (6 and nemesis) which adds stability

I really like the Mazda 6, it "feels fast", the caddy, while I haven't run it yet, has a big rear wing, and the body post mounts were moved down 2 holes in the rear and one in the front, from the locations running the Mazda 6.

The old Stratus has a more nuetral feel to it, the Stratus and Alfa 2.1's are rather "push-y" compared to the others.

I heard both Ceddy and Nemesis have more steering than Mazda6. But what about high speed? Is Ceddy and Nemesis less stable than Mazda6 under high speed?

The caddy is a little bit less stable (looser) than the Mazda, but I found it to be predictable and controllable. On the track here in Vegas, I like it better than the Mazda, Proto Alfa 2, or the Parma Alfa. A little more practice and I think the Parma Alfa may be the way to go. The Mazda is definitely the easiest of those bodies to drive with. Try them for yourself, and rememeber you may have to change the car to get the most out of any of those bodies. I do not run the same exact setup with all of those bodies.

Default atenza s ltd shell

For those of you that asked about this body I found this link today. Atenza is the Japanese/european name for mazda6. I have both the mazda 6 and this new (Active) atenza sp ltd shell. The atenza s limited is faster, smoother and has more front downforce. Anyway here is the link.
