Ford Focus St
#1
I have been searching and searching and looking for a 2013-2014 Focus St body to match my car.  I'm ideally looking for a 190MM body but am fine with a 200mm body.  Has anyone seen one or know of a body that would be similar?  I'm even open to a body that's close in resemblance because I have decal sheets at home from the Pro line focus body for their 16th scale.

HPI Ford Focus RS is likely to be the closest you'll get unless Matrixline makes a Focus ST body. Doesn't really seem like something Tamiya, Pandora, ABC Hobby or the rest would make as they mainly focus on Japanese and European makes or racing replicas.

Looks like Tamiya did make some 2001/2003 Focus WRC bodies, but they are discontinued and 2001/2003 model Focus.

Matrixline has a Focus from 2005-2007 in WRC trim though: http://www.matrixline-rcmodel.com/view.asp?id=5

But that's it, it's not that often newer standard cars enter the RC body market though.

I appreciate all the input. I'm tempted to just buy the redcat racing lightning green body and try to make it as close as possible to the focus.

Where can I buy matrix bodies at? The subaru impreze WRX 10 body is damn near the same as a focus and I already have the decal sheet of my car. That is going to be my best bet from what I'm seeing.

But that body is a replica of a Renault megane?

Oh well..

Damn the peeps in the states are weird - they will only have the RTR bodies - can't find a single dealer with a clear body - I don't know if you want that.. so..

A carbon RTR body: https://www.asiatees.com/display?Matrixl...6639&pid=1
A Blue/silver RTR: http://www.asiatees.com/display?Miscella...7215&pid=1
A Monster RTR: http://www.asiatees.com/display?Miscella...8063&pid=1

Otherwise, Ebay has dealers from United kingdom, like this one:

UK 22£ and 15£ postage = $56,73: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/RC-1-10-EP-Car...Swcu5UNrCk
