Hah. The body is long retired, I got it second hand 15 or so years ago. That pic is from earlier this year though, shortly after I took it out of retirement. It's some kind of Porsche 911 GT1 Le Mans (98?), no idea who made it. Shock tower clearance wasn't too bad on the TC3 but the wheelbase is off by a bit. A TC4 front shock tower doesn't work.

Im pretty sure its made by Frewer racing in New Zealand. He made a few bodies similar to this one. Probably 200mm. Google frewer racing.

That indeed looks like their Porsche GT1 Evo:

I think I'll stick to my MIX Porsche 962 or Protoform Swift-235 on my pan cars, rather than try to force my touring car into something it isn't...

"The coolest body for racing" is the one that gets you around the track the fastest, which is likely the one that everyone is already using. For those that want more realistic looking cars there is VTA, USGT and WGTR.

You might be right about that one, I did get it in NZ and I do have some Frewer stickers lying around. Although it doesn't seem any wider than my 190mm bodies.
