What bodies fits wide rear tires?

I have the Ferrari Modena and the Mercedes D2. I have wider rear wheels and I like the way they handle more than the thinner one (from my origianl skyline). It's time to buy a new body (thanks to my dog) and I was wondering what bodies take advantage of the wider rear tires/wheels? I really like that 2002 Porsche.

Thanks for the quick response. The GT3 is the same as the white 2002 porsche I've had my eyes on. I also like the NSX, but I think the porshe is more my style. It's a bit shorter than the nsx and the ferrari, right?

Your right the Porsche is 4mm shorter (M=90mm) than the 360 and NSX!

only the racing gt3 is wide in the rear though...

what about the supra? i just love the au cerumo... besides the wheel rubbing in the front
the corvette is also wide...

what rims are you planning to use? cuz i think the modenna rims are slightly wider than the normal wide offset rims...

I found that by running the enzo wheels on my 02RM chassis I can run the corvette body and not have any wheel rubbing on the front. I am using the alloy wheels from AVM.

You can see them here in my gallery ......

that is because the mr-01 bodies require non-offset front wheels to work (on the mr02 chassis) withough the wheels protruding from teh body. i believe the enzo and diablo both have non-offset front wheels however many if not all the wide body mr-01's have offset front wheels....

Rims

I have had a pair of alloy rims I purchased off ebay. They fit the Modena perfectly. I orderred the GT3 (white 2002) with hopes that they fit. If they don't, I probably will put them on my D2 Benz.
