Default 1 /10th Sprint Questions

Being I am in Canada the car of choice seems to be leaning towards a new Associated B6 buggy conversion over a Custom works due to parts availability. The questions I have are as follows. Is there a width difference, and or wheel base between the two ,and what's the numbers ?
The custom works "type" rear adjustable arms seem to be the way to go, do they fit, or is it a conversion specific arm required of a different brand ?
Any info on performance differences between the two would be appreciated as well, but I understand the big dog has been CW with a widely used car over the years may skew the numbers.
Thanks in advance POOCH !

You will likely get much better response on one (or a few) of the many RC dirt oval/sprint pages on Facebook ... hundreds of people running several different brands/conversions that are usually more than willing to share their preferences and why ...

... just a few of the several available ...

Not sure on the width differences. I have a Velocity VS-A Sprint and can measure that, but don't have access to a Custom Works car.

I believe the CW rear arms are B6 specific, not conversion specific.

Bit the bullet and bought a box of tires that included one complete Outlaw 4 , 2 regular and the car set up with an off set chassi, all but receiver and two complete bodies with cages and wings, and tons of shock towers front and back. Will need to purchase a Associated Builders kit to verify my curiosity, but also to get a few cars rolling once I get a club up in running here in the Vancouver BC area. Hope to start producing carbon body parts as that is what I do. Looks like clubs vary as to the use of carbon for parts, but availability is pretty low for anything at the moment.
