Default which scooby body??

I have a HPi RS4 Rally car and i brought the kit with the Focus WRC body. This body has seen better days.





I want to get ONE of the two new age Subaru Impreza shells that HPi do...(bit of a scooby fan)

Either this touring one:
http://www.hpi-europe.com/piw.php?lang=en&partNo=7499

or this WRC one
http://www.hpi-europe.com/piw.php?lang=en&partNo=17505

Now the thing is i am going to paint the shell white ALL WHITE and going with the subtle look (no racing/rally graphics) just lights and grills.
- going for the drift car look

and i am going to get it off with these wheels

http://www.hpi-europe.com/piw.php?lang=en&partNo=3835

and new tries of course.

PLease help me decide of sheels please.

Darren

I think the second one would look better, the blue one.

I have both (also a scoob nut!) but it depends what kind of racing you going to be doing!

If you going to use the car for bashing around and racing then I suggest getting the racing impreza cause the injection moulded plastic wing is a lot more durable. I think all of HPI's bodies should come with injection moulded wings. It has alot more down force effect as well...also looks the part. The body has a body kit on it to make it look like a tuned up street car.

The WRC version looks cool but after a couple of tumbles the wing falls off and it's a pain to keep sticking it back![:@]

My scoob cents worth!

I take on board what you said about the difference in scoob 2004 shells. and I know what you mean about the rear wing falling off...the same thing happens on my Focus shell.
