Default 190mm vs 200 mm

whats the deal man?

like i got a electric 4wd which are generally all 190mm, but thing is ive bought 3 bodies and none of these bodies had the plastic body post lined up to how its marked on the lexan.

so theres not really much pt in the difference is there? i mean at my local shop they have hardly any 190's and heaps of 200s,
will it be a big diff if i bought a 200?


im guna have to puncture holes in it anyways....




anyone?


thanks a mill

190mm and 200mm refers to the width of the body. For the wheels to look "right", you'll need to get some wheels with a wider offset. Other than that, it'll be ok.

I say line up the body with the mounting posts and punch your holes. I think you'll find that 10mm won't make too big of a difference to make it look mismatched.

yeh true, i think i even bought a 200mm by mistake. lol


and extra 5mm out on each side of the care will be barely noticeable dont ya'll think?




anyone use 200mm's instead of 190 when they cant find the right sized body?

Some wheels come with spacers to offset them.
