Default 200mm body for electric

Got a few 200mm body around the house. And I want to use it for my Yokomo LCG. What wheel offset do I need? Is there any negative effect using a 200mm body for electric?

Can anyone recommed a body with decent performance for me? Something that is more realistic not the standard Mazda 6, Stratus...etc

The main negitive effect is that it is not legal. The maximum width for electric touring is 190mm

Are there any concern with using an offsetted rim? Since, I am only running with friends, I dont really care about being legal...

I dont know of anyone that makes a 5mm offset rim? If you could find one, there wouldnt really be tot much of an issue I guess. The car will probably react a little slower. Maybe someone else could shed some light on what it would do.

Tamiya make three different thickness, aluminum hex hubs. the widest should get you close to 200mm.

Someone at LHS told me to use 26mm rim with 3mm offset. And that would put me at the right wide...
