I've had a kyosho team driver tell me that offset in the wheel or the hex feels different, but I can't seem to work out the geometry other than the wheel is just stiffer because of how wide it is.
On a RRR, it is really a number of factors. If you use zero offset rear wheels (only the rears have an offset), you need to turn out the piviot ball screws to make 200mm, which means you're moving out the entire hub assembly on each side by 2mm. But regardless of if you use zero offset or +2mm offset wheels, the wheels are still in the same position relative to the centerline of the car if the track width is 200mm.
Something also to think about is contact patch and camber relatvie to a zero offset and +2mm offset wheel. Which one has a greater contact patch when cornering relative to camber setting?
I wish someone could get the info straight from the guy that designed the RRR. I think a lot of people have some good educated guesses as to why the car was designed this way, but it would be good to hear it from the source.
