Default What lexan body is this?

Guys, can you tell what body is this?
It has three wing supports and the cabin seems very small. It looks like the TAMIYA LEGACY B4 Version 2.0 but the Tamiya does not have three wing supports, just the conventional two.

Here is what I am looking for:


First car on this picture:


and the new TAMIYA LEGACY B4 Version 2.0 that looks similar..

I thought so initially but that is true only for Hara's body and the rest on the technical inspection bench. The yellow/blue on the TAMIYA car, together with the white/pink/blue on Maezumi's TAMIYA look different than all the rest that are RIDE bodies. Also on the subject bodies, there is an embossed line on each side..

Its not the tamiya shells. If you look it has 3 rear wing mounts. It shud be easy to identify it going off that feature.

looks like a titan tc2 to me...it has the bits sticking out on the wing (like most titan wings do) and 3 wing supports (like most titan shells do)

very similar..or almost identical to a proto stratus2

That body is NOT a Blitz 1.9 ... I have the TC 1.9 and it is different:

- Blitz TC 1.9 does not have a "thin cabin" ... much like the protoform stratus, the 1.9's cabin stretches to the side or the rear quarter pannel.

This may be a prototype shell that a company is testing with guys. It may be a Blitz ... or another company that has adopted the third wing support.

We have these bodies readily available here in Toronto Canada ... you may want to contact Blitz through their site and find out who distributes the bodies in your area. Here is the North American site:

http://www.team-titan-ca.com/

I currently have both the M6 and the TC 1.9 bodies and they seem to be pretty good. Their price is less then a protoform body here - and the durability of their lexan seems good.

My guess would be a Tamiya B4 Legacy.
