Default Whats a good HPI body?

The HPI cup im planning to join doesn't allow protoform and other bodies.

Any recommended bodies? Im currently using an RSX. I heard sedans perform better?

Thanks!

Car is an RS4 3

Theres a long straight with some sharp turns. There are also flowing parts of the track as well.

Thanks!

here's the pictures of my EVO 3 I ran at the HPI worlds last week....The stratus and Escudo body are illegal,and Thad Garner from HPI suggested the NSX....

The track was long and flowing,with a nice infield.....Teh car was glued to the track....and it turned great....

I'm going to try it on my R40 as well........

You can't go wrong with the ol'e Stratus......as far chassis set-up I don't run a HPI so good luck with that.
