Thanks
My IS-F-R on a 190mm TC6 required 9mm offset rear and 6mm offset front to make it look right.

Posting pics in a few more posts....

Thx already got my body and wheels.

6/9 offset does look good but not really drivable, front rubs fenders when turning

BTW its on a FF03

Thats the thing Charlie knows the value of a clean paintjob. Not everything has to look like an easter egg, but if you do want an easter egg paintjob then Charlie can do those too.

There is nothing wrong with a nice clean red shell.

SWEET job !! I too love the Pantera body. I have one for GT and VTA. No wing in VTA but MAN....does that wing make a difference in GT. It looks great but I definitely think it helps the stability.

Thanks man. Yeah, I went up to my hobby store and browsed bodies. I found this one 50% off I opened it up and found it was missing the wing part. I'm thinking I'll put on this old wing though because though I haven't run it yet, it doesn't look like it gets great downforce.


Not sure if I should. Just don't know if the carbon fiber will clash with all the white. There's going to be white wheels too. Just what I have laying around, so I went with mainly white decals. Or I could paint a regular touring spoiler the color of the body. Not sure.

200mm bodies on 190mm TC5. Just getting into onroad and going to run the RCGT class locally. All the bodies I really like are 200mm. Is it just a simple manner of buying HPI offset wheels and then mounting the x-patterns to them?

6mm offset front and back, 9mm offset front and back, 6in front 9in back?

I'm assuming issue has been tested and handled already by numerous folks running 190mm electric touring car chassis.

Thanks
