Default Which race body?

I'm looking for a race style body for my Savage. I'm having trouble deciding between the Parma and the Pro-line. Which one is stronger? Any other ones I should be checking out?

the Parma is .050 IIRC,and the proline is .060. I've yet to run a parma MT body (the X-Citer for the savage will be my next), but on my 1/10 cars prolines usually held up better than parmas or HPI's, if that tells ya anything.

I like the LST Racer Body... but its too long for the Savvy. Doesnt Proline make a crowd pleazer for it?

I really like the new Crowd Pleazer 2 bodies, but there aren't any made for the Savage. I also really like the LST2 version and I like it's size too. I thought about getting that one and trimming the wheelwells a bit to make it fit. Most bodies look kind of funny on the savage. It's between the Maxx/Revo and the LST in size, so either they look too small or too big. When I made my TVPs, I almost stretched them .75"-1" just so the 1:8 bodies would fit better.
The Parma X-citer is made to fit the Savage and it's .060 lexan like the Pro-line stuff. I like how swoopy it looks. I don't know, I might still go with the Crowd Pleazer 1...

I thought about just getting stupid and going with the Parma trash truck body, then writing "Salvage 25" on the side instead of "Savage 25". Kind of corny, but it's funny too.
