190mm ROAR approved shell: rear wheel opening

On Proline's 200mm Stratus and Accord shells, they leave the rear wheel opening "flat" to allow the custom location of the wheel opening, based car's actual wheel base. These are approved shells for 200 Nitro touring.

However, they don't do this to their 190mm shell [it's molded, so if you cut along the body lines, the tires sit too forward, and I have to imagine (depending on the car's wheel base) too far back. The opposite; you cut it based on your car's wheel base, then it looks like a botched, hack job that just happened to line up with your wheels!

Anybody know which manufacturer makes a ROAR legal shell for electric touring with the non-molded rear wheel opening?

its most likely ROAR approved, the hpi aero2 doesnt have molded rear wheel openings, so you can mark out where you want them to go.
