I seen this question gets asked a lot and it's 'is my celica a narrow or wide body?'

On the left is a narrow body and on the right is a wide body.



It's not just the rear arches that are wide, the front are also wider than narrow.

Its also a rumour that a narrow body shell is lighter than a wide body Neutral

I am led to believe the normal body is infact lighter than a widebody, but the difference is hardly worth making a fuss about (~50kg)

true, but 50 kilograms can make a huge difference when it's up to performance!

Im not exactly sure on the exact weight difference, hence saying ~50kg. Last bit i read it was more about 20kg. The weight ive gained having widebody, ive lost having no sunroof/abs/rc front reinforcement.
