    narrowing chassis or wheel axles

    I have a new body for my hpi rs4rc car, but the body is narrow and the wheels on the carstick out too muchfrom the sides. Is there any way of narrowing the chassis of the car, or a way to shorten the axles? Thanks.

    RE: narrowing chassis or wheel axles

    You most likly got a 190mm body where the hpi rs4 is a 200mm, so you probably have 5mm of tire sticking out on each side correct? The best way to solve your problem is buying a new 200mm body..it would be stupid to modify a chassis to fit a 20 dollars body.

    RE: narrowing chassis or wheel axles

    Sorry, but I think FastRS4s pretty much summed it up. For all the work it'd need to narrow it up, you'd be much better off buying a 200mm body. There aren't any swap in parts, that I know of, to reduce the width.
