I have seen people running this shell on their cars in this thread and was curious what offsets they were using too. Any information would be much appreciated. Thanks!
Ok unless someone has your exact chassis and shell they are going to have to guess on what to tell you. Cut the shell out along body lines and then measure across from the lip of one fender to the same fender on the opposite side. If it's a 190mm shell then the measurement should be somewhere near that number. Next measure across your chassis from the outside edge of one hex to the opposite side. This should also be near 190mm. If it is then I would reccomend 0mm offset. If the shell is 200mm then theoretically you should be able to use up to 5mm offset without extending past the fenderwells.

It's not so bad once you get the feel for it.
Good luck.

Hi, I run a Kyosho TF-5S with a Honda HSV010 Raybrig body and I
did not have to use any offset at all. See Attached photos. Regards

Here is an HPI McLaren F1 LM.

I used rattle cans and the red base coat went a little too orange after backing. Luckily I had some old Autographics Penske Indycar decals which fit the final color.

Norman, one thing to remember is that the TF5S is a 200mm width chassis vs. typical 190mm electric tc chassis. Although 200mm width is normal for nitro tc's, it is rather unuasual for electric tc's.
That is the reason for your car requiring little offset in the wheels.


LosiSean, It's important to know the body dimensions you plan on using. Many Tamiya bodies are actually 185mm wide. HPI and others are 190 or 200mm. On my XXXS I typically use a 200mm body and , although I've not tried bodies like the HSV or Lexus Concept, I've found 3mm front and 6mm back has worked well.

Brian does nice work. He's also one of the most helpful people at the track! Always takes time to answer questions and offers help to people who are obviously struggling. "He's the best kind of people" as my grand Dad used to say.

I love the neon orange/white scheme. I still remember all the years that Penske Racing had Indy Cars painted like this with the Marlboro logo. Too cool!

The USGT class is big at our track. We run at www.RCARINDY.com. A great place to race! Our USGT class is 21.5 and Solaris tires or HPI X-Patterns and GT type bodies. This one is lights ready, but I've not installed them yet.

I painted this for myself. The HPI Nissan Nismo 350Z seems to be everyone's favorite USGT body. Handles well and the wind down force is excellent. Can you tell I like orange?

I'd seen a go kart racer who had a body done with orange and neon orange. I liked the way they looked together. Neons don't always show up well in pictures, but I think you can tell in these.

Default My latest paint

Thought I'd go with old school Nissan scheme. I'm kinda surprised I haven't seen anybody else do this yet.
