    Ive found some evo bodies, Not sure if their still in production though,
    Tamiya Part# 1825184 Mitsubishi Lancer Evo V rally body
    # 58257 / 57706 Lancer Evo VI

    I found that Tamiya did make a lancer evo IV body but its discontinued now the part number was 58199

    If you cant get one of the tamiya bodies, Id just use the Hpi shell if the body is a little wider than the one that came with you car just use wheels with a higher offset. I used a staggered offset setup on my nitro car 3mm up front and 6mm in the back. I use an hpi 350z 200mm body. the 6mm offset wheels have a sick lip on them to.
    Dont feel bad about having trouble finding the body that you really want though, Ive wished for years they would make a 95 civic EX body, but thats very unlikely, they did make a hatchback version at one time though. Maybe someone at a hobby shop somewhere might still a old evo IV body collecting dust. Hope you find one you like.
