It depends on your setup. depending on how far the pivot balls are in or out, the track width can vary a bit. The hudy set up system takes cars with different widths, but without a measuring tool, you won't now the measurement exactly.

just bust out your NTC3 manual and use the tool that comes with the kit and set it up that way, THEN throw it on the hudy and see what the measurement comes out too. good idea?

If you use the kit tool to set-up your NTC3, you'll come in some where around 198 mm. Then set it on your Hudy board and take it out to 200 mm if you like.

If you set it up as the book tells you, and you run 30mm tires...

It's over 200mm's wide....Went to a race that had a metal box the car HAD to slide out of...it wouldn't.

Unless you were running a lot of toe out or offset wheels, the car should have been the same width as with regular 26-28mm foams. 30mm foam have more meat on the inner part of the wheel. Not the outer.
