Good AWD 94mm Race Bodies

Hi peeps,
I currently run the 575 GTC on my AWD because it's the length and width I like to drive with. However, I feel that its life is coming to an end after over a years worth of racing under its belt.

I wanted a new 94mm body with a wide footprint. I know there are a lot of wide 94mm bodies out there, but what I need to know is - which ones fit well?

For example, the Corvette C5 or the Honda NSX 2005 or 2007 are perfect, but too low for the chassis.

Does anyone know of any tried and tested, wide, 94mm bodies please...

Here are some options I was considering but don't know if they will fit:

Ferrari F40
Ferrari F50
Ferrari F430 GT (is the offset wider for this version?)
Calsonic Skyline GT-R
Motul Pitwork Skyline GT-R

Thanks in advance for any help.

The F430GT and 360GTC are great with a AWD from my experience.

i like running the lexuse sc430 the best... narrow rims all the way around 3.5 rear and 2.5 fronts... pn 25 front and pn 15 rear tires works the best for me pretty much any track i race at... at lower traction tracks i will go to pn 20 front tires.... the short 94mm wheel base with narrow rims front and rear creat alot of rotation for a small platform... the next best choice would be the 05 350 with same offsets... i feel that this body does create alittle more front push than the lexus because of the heavy rear...

The corvette can pose some problem with the board cover in AM, in 2.4 I don't know. A little dremeling and it will be fine.
As for the NSX 2005. The top of the knuckles can hit the hood. I simply dremeled two holes for the knuckles. It's invisible from the outside as I don't go through the whole body and work well. It's my body of choice after the 350Z. I use it for a year now and still in great shape.


Here are some options I was considering but don't know if they will fit:

Ferrari F40 It's a 90mm body
Ferrari F50Fit fine
Ferrari F430 GT (is the offset wider for this version?)Fit fine
Calsonic Skyline GT-RNot sure about these GT-R but I bet they fit fine
Motul Pitwork Skyline GT-R
Hope it helps you!
