I run 0-offset on my CRT with Kyosho hockey stick steering rod ends and I would say the truck turns quicker tighter and it is more forgiving during bad landings. It's easier to design a suspension when the inside of the wheel is out of the way and I would suspect that is why the CRT(whch I own and love) runs half offset wheels and the Kyosho and others do not. I cant see any reason to run half offset wheels for racing. But that is my opinion and more and more people are seeing it my way.
