The Evo 9 kit is on there too but it's not a car so I didn't list it.
A bodykit list would be great too.
Awesome, man, many thanks for the contribution! :)

We could make a body kit list seperately afterwards maybe, if that's something the good people would like.
You're welcome dude.
Looking forward to see that list flourish!
Also, have you thought of hyperlinking each body to the mfg page?

One might get overwhelmed of the amount of Silvias in the search for a new body, so hopefully this can help a little bit with the possibilities out there. :-)

Regarding hyperlinking; all the bodies are hyperlinked to the manufacturer page except for D-Like. I lost all motivation trying to navigate their Japanese website so I took the easy route and linked to the Race & Drift Japan website.

I will link to the manufacturer page for all those I can. :-)

Just realized you already hyperlinked it.
Awesome job dude, thank you a lot for doing this.
I wanted to add a few Kawada bodies such as the LS400 widebody and Nissan Y33 but they are out of stock so I'm assuming they are discontinued... =L

not necessarily. usually if it's discontinued, not just temporarily out of stock, it'll say "no longer available" or "discontinued". it's not uncommon for RC bodies to be out of stock for weeks or even months at a time.

Update: Added the Matrixline body shells and sorted the list a little more correctly.

*

After adding the first five shells to the list (in the start when the list only contained the Pandora shells) I found that it was already starting to get "bothersome" to maintain. Also I could just imagine how difficult it would be as the list grows, to be able to add large quantities of shells in bulk, while still being able sort it easily. It ended as an excel spreadsheet where you just paste the link, write/paste make, model, body brand, and comment if you want, which then generates a finished list item with a hyperlink.

This list also autogenerates a column containing only the text without the BB Code, so that the list always can be quickly and correctly sorted in excel by this column before copying the code onto the forum.

The complete list would quickly get messy if we were to add shells in between, one by one all the time. Now, as long as the naming structure in the list is pretty close to "make model - rc make", then it should be pretty much alphabetically sorted and chronological at all times.

Hopefully.

Here's the list behind the scenes:

Thanks again for tipping me about Matrixline. Good to see some uncommon car brands. I added the "available in carbon print" comment behind those relevant.

Does anyone know if Matrixline are actually licensed? There seems to be conflicting information on if they are legit.
