mr015/mr02 high mount (hm) autoscale bodies

just wondering...
thus far kyosho has made autoscale bodies that could fit the m (mid) & l (long) chassis setting with the high motor (hm) mount set up...

i.e.
kyosho autoscale bodies for the mid chassis high mount (hm) - the new beetle, toyota vitz, honda fit and the ford focus....

kyosho autoscale bodies for the long chassis high mount (hm) - vw golf gti (that's all i can think of at the moment) any others?

my question is...

if kyosho would/could/should make a s (short) chassis setting with the high motor (hm) mount set up, what body would/could it be? or what body would you like to see?

i'd say the original mini-cooper... but they already have that in their mini-lit line-up...

next guess... how about the mercedes benz a class?

any other guesses/suggestions?

Herman, you forgot the mini cooper S

I think Renault Clio would be great. Honda Civic DX (the two-door hatch) would be nice and, of course, BMW 1 series hatch

The Smart Car would be more suitable for the Lite series due to it's size. I don't think it'll work and be to scale if done on an MR15HM. But I agree, the Smart should be popular enough and I'd like to see one. However, let's try and not make this into an I want this body kind of thread. I don't think it's what herman intended.

In that case, forget the normal Renault Clio, I want the Renault Clio Sport. Much more aggressive looking and it's a mid-engine sports car.
Another favorite would be the Renault R5 Turbo like the red one in Never Say Never Again.

I actually had a sport version in mind. There is (was?) a Clio championship series. Could be a nice class by itself

Well, I used to run a high long mount on my evo 6 body when I used to race

I would definitely like to a Honda Civic Type R and the new subaru impreza (hatchback)
