Default Tamiya bodies for racing

I am going to enter a race event where we can only use scale shells (Tamiya).

In the UK the TCS events died a long time ago, when the 2003 nsx and 360 Modena were the most popular. These are hard to get now, so I would appreciate any info on the preferred modern Tamiya shells that are used for these events (or similar) and their handling characteristics.

Thanks

BRZ, Ferrari 599xx, Ferrari 458 are all good neutral handling bodies.

Thanks for that, are they the main ones that people use at TCS events?

The BRZ won GT1 and GT2 classes in the US. Both classes have the winners go to Japan.

I also hear that the new yet to be released GTR Skyline is going to be the next Pseudo NSX.

Rod Canare won the GT2 Tamiya Worlds with an NSX Concept GT

This body is great outdoors too

...and if you squint your eyes enough and ignore the b-c window pillar treatment the new Raikiri has an old NSX shape to it. Just saying

I know, it looks great. I think it might not be allowed as its not a real car

I thought the same and then looked it up. It is a real car. Pretty cool. I might try that body, but if you are looking for the biggest replacement for the nsx, then go with the brz. I like the brz and the 599. The 599 is easy to drive but maybe a bit slower.
