Looking at that body, it looks like some sort of variation of the Ride Mk line. The Rayspeed accors has a much different front end, and the stratus type E has a much shorter trunk lid, and a different roofline (looking at one right now).

No I donīt think so. Itīs no Protoform.
Also itīs no Yokomo Stratus E. I have seen one in the pits and this thing completely looks different.

But just had a look again at my Ride bodies. It seems to me this is a Ride MK III or an improved version from this. The frontlip seems to be a bit larger than the MK III but the other part of the front exactly look like a Ride. Yesterday I asked the mechanic who does the motors and he said Excel body but I donīt know if this is true maybe he wasnīt sure either. But donīt know how an Excel looks. Any website on Excel bodies?

Regarding the wing I wanted look at the Flap site but it seems this isnīt existing anymore or has changed. Anyone knows?

Maybe the wing is a Goraku wing. Just canīt find a picture.

Nope, no website. Some people at my track use the Exel Stratus, and from what i can tell it is the same. No idea where my LHS got the bodies from...
I'm Googling for it right now.

EDIT:
Here is the Excel website: http://www.rc-excel.jp/

That bodyshell is an excel Stratus.

We have just been testing one on our TC4 this morning.

Very good.

Are there different Excel versions or is it just one Stratus?
Is this the supplied wing or a different brand?
