Default Tamiya experts...what chassis is this?

I got this from a guy on CL that didnt know too much about it and didnt want a FWD car. He told me it was a Mini Cooper with a spacer and touring car wheels, but after researching it, the pics I found online

-make it look like a FF02 with a 239 black spacer or a gray chassis M03. Does anyone know definitively? How can I tell the difference? Any help is appreciated so I know which direction to head with this car.

Looks like a silver chassis M-03 (short) which has had the long-wheelbase spacer (black) fitted at a later date.

All FF-02s were silver, and all out-of-the box M-03Ls are black.

The difference between an M03L and an FF02 is the width, this is a long wheelbase mini, if it was an FF02 it would have longer wishbones and would be 185mm wide.

I agree with the others. Also, that's a Trinity Stock motor fitted in it.

FF02 also has an even longer wheelbase spacer.
