Something with a big wing on it would do.

the lola body is ofcrosue the best......but it might not be legal depending on what class u jump in........from ur choices im guessing ur looking into sedan class........

in that class ur best choice is the DODGE STATUS body, i might not seem like if fromt he LOOKS of it..........but its the best body that provides jsut the RIGHT AMOUNT downforce and drag........


also the mazda body (i forgot the model name) is a real good chocie too

The Corvette and saleen will be real aerodynamic and not as ugly as the stratus or mazda 6.

Most people recommend the NSX for handling at speed. Tamiya makes a lightweight version, and it's very detailed too. Another new one which handles well is the new Tamiya Supra GT. I'd recommend making sure you have plenty of downforce if you're going really fast.
