Tamiya Scirocco is probably the coolest I've seen. I'd recommend that one.

Just finished this body of a EG Civic, I have always loved this body, just a suggestion. Should be an easy body to obtain...

I raced and had excellent results with the Tamiya Toyota Tom's Exiv JTCC body on my FF03 Pro. I have also raced the Tamiya Citroen Xsara WRC 2004 with some success. I prefer the Toyota.

Those look awesome SteveM, do you prefer the Toy, cause of the handling of the car on the track, or your talking about the sheer look of it?

This site is far behind the times, with the inability to upload pictures to the site, and even if I could they are terrible quality.... In this digital day and age it is sad to see. Go here and look at the pictures I posted;

Yes it is a Tamiya, here is the part number: SP-1421 or 51421.
(1/10 Scale R/C Castrol Honda Civic VTi Body Parts Set).

Either one of those part numbers should yield you the right part. Good Luck!

Hello Steve,
I tried to look for the toyota body you mentioned in Hong Kong and USA with no luck.
Is it aerodynamically good? It looks good for sure

I found the civic body you mentioned

Love to see how yours looks like

Forgot about that....here you go bad quailty but better than nothing!

Hint: When you place the large stickers on the side of the body to outline the two tone paint, line up the moulding (white) on the sticker with the body, this will make the placement easier, well in my case it did...good luck!

Try golf24 #51497...more responsive steering than Scirocco.
