Hmmm looking at the Japanese mag, it is a B4. But I think it's a prototype. Satoshi has been running it.

Its a Blitz for sure. If you have seen a brand new Blitz body in a bag you will recognize the wing.

No, not a Blitz. The cabin is alot different. And the 3 supports are also different. Looking further into the magazine. It says it's a B4 Proto Body. As for wings. That don't mean much. They always run different wings anyways. Most popular seems to be the Yokomo Wing 3 and 3.1..

Looks too much like a Mazda 6. Does the pic of the B4 Proto Body look like a Mazda 6? Can you post a pic of the B4 Proto Body?

Hara's body looks like the Excel Accord. As for the body on the tamiya car it does not look like my Legacy 2. The window lines, wing mount, rear flared arches and the side of the front splitter all seem to be different.

It look's like a morph between a Legacy 2 and a HPI NSX ... Legacy front and side, NSX cabin.

Funny though ... Blitz wing supports, HPI NSX cabin, Legacy doors (due to the "bump" that runs horizontal across the doors), and a mazda 6 front end .... talk about a chameleon.

I wonder if it will ever be released.

Well. The Body you are looking for istn't tamiya or anything.

it's just an usual Protoform Mazda 6 200mm. It has three body mount just to handle the extra speed nitros have.

Hara's Body is an Ride Honda Accord.


Actually I don't know if you can even think it is a Tamiya body. They've just left some stickers from the body. For electric TC's the 190mm Mazda should be the better one.

Yes. Hood, front, tail. Unique as it should be. Only the spoiler isn't the normal one. Maybe an addon or so.

The wing could be a Flap.
Here is a flap-decal upfront on this body.
Or it might be a Flap body....

I think Flap just makes wings not bodies.

The shape of the car looks alot like me Titan Mazda 6 which has 3 wing mounts, with different light decals, but the shell behind is a Mazda 6
maybe even a YOKOMO CHEVRON G350GT
