Default Truggy width rules??

I have a Mugen MBX6T and MBX6 Buggy. I know there are rules for how wide the buggy must be, but are there rules for how wide your truggy must be? I have fitted Pro Line Bo-Ties tires and it has a 1/2'' offset. Will that make my Truggy illegal to race with?

With all the knowlege on this forum, no one can answer this question, I cant believe it
Anyone out there has the answer, is there rules governing how wide a Truggy must be? Can I race my MBX6T with 1/2 inch offset tire/rims?

Your truggy was designed to use 0 offset wheels, why not run with those? Imo, using those 1/2 offset wheels will make your truck turn like a Dump Truck. I've tried it on my 6t before because I had an extra set laying around from my other truggy.

Wheelbase is measured front to rear, center to center.
