Stratus 2 from protoform at a guess. It is the only shell people run at the UK nationals.

I am pretty sure the Ride stratus shell is not BRCA legal which is where that picture was taken.

for the boddy in question, its a stratus 2.0 protoform. i have both the Ri stratus and the 2.0 in front of me. the RI has a lip on the back of the car under the wing. but the wing in the picture is not the standard wing that comes with the 2.0 its somthing else. maybe its teh RI wing, lol

and for the purple stuff that is NOT on the kit verson i think it has somthing to do with the team drivers such as hara when they made the parts they wanted purple. also the black parts on the kit are NOT plastic (i am pretty sure) if they were plastic then 500 for the kit would be a big rip off. as i stated a few posts up i think it might be a way of creating a hop line for the car so they can make a little extra money or they wanted to keep it black so they could later come out with a Hara verson later that would have all the purple. lastly it could be because the black "stealth" look is becoming a pretty popular as people are starting to put all black wires on their esc and things of the nature.

That's what I'm trying most of the time, to make a chassis with not too many colours (black and dark colours prefered). That's a style I really like, I'm not really into all those purple, blue, green, gold, etc coloured/anodized parts.
Though, there is a place where I am trying to use lots of colours, and that's on the body.

Yep it's true it isnt coming out in purple but no dout that you will be able to make it purple by buying the parts...i think it will look cool in black any way

Looks like the same Xenon-wing the HB drivers are using most times.

since the Pro4 and Cylone have for the most part the same suspension (i know the towers are different but i dont know how the hole differ) do you think we could copy a setup (suspension wise) from our pro4 to the cyclone?

I don't see why not...mounting holes on the shock towers should be very similar to keep the same geometry from the Pro4 to the Cyclone.
