I would get the HPI.They seem to hold up a little better and you get a much better sticker kit with the body(I dont know if that matters)The Yokomo bodys are a little thiner so they dont hold up as well.

yea but i have a 190mm car. if i get that, a 200mm rx7, it'll look really awkward.

Don't forget Kawada!! They have a nice RX-7 also. ABC also has 2 RX bodies. 1 is the current body style,the other is the 88-92 body style.

It's fairly easy to widen the car, 3mm off set wheels and 2 mm spacers. But check the track rules about 200 mm are allowed...

I can confirm, that HPI bodies have good stickers.

Here ya go !! www.abchobby.com. and www.kawadamodel.co.jp. The Kawada distributor in the U.S. is www.evolutionhobbies.com. Bob is very helpful. There is no U.S. distributor for ABC's 1/10 th bodies that I know of. They are easy to work with though.Also talk to Paul Yap at www.modeloneracing.com. He's great !!
