Default Trying to build a nice civic replica need a chassis

So I have purchased and painted the tamiya 92-95 body style eg civic body pictured in my avatar. Its a 257 mm wheelbase. I have seen conflicting width measurements online 173mm, 180mm, 190mm dont have a ruler handy so idk?. Now I need to pick a chassis. It was made to fit the ff03 and the tt01, but there is not a local store for parts support. I want to run a brushless lipo setup for high speed parking lot fun. I may also one day be interested in learning drifting so the ff03 may be out. I read about the HPI E10 but it got a lot of bad reviews. If im overlooking a viable option please let me know. I really like the various yokomo replica wheels I have seen on ebay but Im not sure what they fit for sure. My other concern is lighting. I masked off and left the headlight and tail light sections of the body clear but no one makes premade backing reflectors so I have been experinmenting with plastics. I'm interested in the gt power led light kit but read that using a 2.4 ghz radio system may cause problems with it. Any suggestions would be helpful.

For realism, the ff03 would be my choice.
Even the ff01, but parts are harder to get.
If you wanna drift, the tt01 is a great choice.
Relatively cheap kit and lots of parts availability.
