Figured I'll be needing a new body whenever and already know I want a GT86 so...

What GT86/BRZ/FRS bodies are available out there?

Really leaning toward the Tamiya R&D Sport BRZ, Eazy Street's was so clean and different.
I got a toyota 86 frs that I haven't painted yet lol Been sitting for like 2 weeks. Just bought it while it was in stock at hobby town..
in my opinion, BRZ GT300 from Tamiya is good but it is meant for touring car (Super GT) and not for drifting, so choose from

the difference between these two is in the size

the DSLike body has a low, narrow and long feel. it's an easy body for most to feel comfortable with
the front bumper is not very scale and the windows taper in which doesn't happen on the real car.

the Tamiya is pretty scale back to the rear section which is where a lot of the shortening happens.
It's also very high.

the HPI FR-S was also released recently.

the Tamiya Super GT bodies are made for a really low mounting position.

If you don't have a shaft drive or a TA-06, then carefully consider the spur position.

This is what I plan to do, but I'm going to use white rims instead :)
I have the HKS yokomo 86 still sitting in its plastic... havent gotten around to painting it yet..
Thats the exact reason why I want to use the R&D BRZ.  It's different.  I don't like people telling me what I can and can't use because we all express ourselves a little differently. Who drifts a minivan in real life? but the Vellfire and HiAce both seem to be pretty popular. That said, thanks for the list. That was exactly what I was looking for!

Russ it was from your Samurai and Tsunami 86 blog that I fell in love with this body. Lol, it's from your blog I fell in love with alot of things!

Nate that's a sick FRS!

So my top 3 right now:
-R&D Sport BRZ
-Yokomo HKS 86
-D-like Rocket Bunny

You're right about the Tamiya GT86. From some angles it looked like a Mazda Axela hatch to me
dude that is awesome!! do it man.. they got that body at Lils waiting for you to buy it.. almost bought it... i like to be different from others too.. hehe..
the hpi fr-s isnt out already right? i cant find that body anywhere...
Those are some sick bodys, great work
