Any of the HPI rims & tires will work. i have a tc5 also and it works great for drift. I actually have 2 TC5's. One is set up for Drift and one is set up for Race. The real decision is your offset. if you buy a Wide (200mm) body... you might want to step up to a 3-6mm offset. My TC5 Drifter is set up with 3mm offset in the front with a 6mm offset in the rear. makes for a realistic look. gives the rear a fatter lip for "Bling" purposes. =)
i have no idea, what that means. lol. im new to all this. new to electric period. i have had gas for a long time but just bought a b4 and a tc5. both with tekin rs pro but as far as anything else i need, or need to do, any help would be awesome...
Think about it like this. Most electric Touring cars are 190mm wide. That means that a 190mm shell will fit perfectly if you use wheels that have zero offset. Now what if you want to use a 200mm shell? Thats 10mm wider isnt it? Well a 3mm offset wheel x2 + the 190mm = 196mm of width. That will look a lot better under the fenderwells of a 200mm shell right? A pair of 6mm offset wheels will give you +12mm of offset plus 190mm = 202mm under a 200mm shell? Well it just depends on the shell. Under some of them it would be excellent, Others would be too tight.
