I just bought this body and had it shipped from japan. It does not have all the original livery like "REKNOWN" most likely due to licensing issues.
Note: Official Tamiya 1/10 Group C/Lemans bodies will not fit the F103GT.
It will only fit if new holes are opened in the body as the Group C mounts are closer together and farther forward than the F103GT.
The F103GT(257mm) is 23mm shorter than the Group C(280mm) in its longest configuration. This configuration is required for almost all of the Group C/lemans bodies offered by Tamiya. The track of the F103GT is far too narrow for the Group C body as well. The Chargespeed Mazda 787b body is approximately 230mm wide or even wider.
The F201 wheel base is perfect for the tamiya mazda 787b/C11/Jag/Nissan/etc. But again, like the F103GT, the track is too narrow. +10 offset is required on touring wheels for the f201 track to match the body width.
The only way to get the tamiya Group C/Lemans body onto the F103gt chassis plates is to flip the front suspension such that the arms are attached backwards. The F103RM and F104 chassis are both also longer, so replacing the F103GT carbon plates will get you closer to the Group C full length, but will only get you halfway there, to the 2nd notch setting on the Group C chassis. If you go this route, TRG makes front uprights that have flippable positions to length/shorten wheel base.
The last option which I personally use is to put the F1-09 adjustable arms on the F103GT chassis and use the f104 tires. The rears need spacers in order to be wide enough using the F103/F103gt driveshaft along with the F104 rear wheels. I also can use the F104 carbonshaft and use the original Group C car rearwheels with the adapters. This allows me to run 200m wide touring car bodies using super wide rears. Best of all, the C-car/F103GT chassis adds to the realism of MR race cars. Can't beat that.
