T3'12 with the SP 21.5 and Reventon S is up and running. Picked up an unpainted Lexus LFA body for cheap. I have to dress all the wiring in, but it's that much closer to running.

What size wheel hexes are being used to get the wheels to fit the 200 mm body? I'm pretty sure I have 4 mm and 5 mm.

Which direction is everyone running the Ride spec tires? I'm planning to mount them with the bottom of the U facing forward and try that 1st and flip them to the other side and see which way works best.

I haven't noticed any difference either way.

Is their a way to get the correct offset with a 200mm body on an Xray T4 '13 with using the standard wheels from Gravity RC? I was thinking maybe some wider hexes? Anybody tried something like that?

I use 0 offset rims like the gravity ones. I use 6 mm hexes and I also widened the track with at the suspension mounts a little bit.

FYI, TQ RC sells some 7mm hexes, too. That's what I'm planning on running just to fill out the rear fenders of my 190mm body!

I'm in the same boat for this class. Some +3 rims that don't shatter would be nice!

Nice! With 7mm would you still have enough thread to put the wheel on still? Also is a standard hex 3mm or 5mm?
