i mean like putting wheel adapters and longer universals or something to make the wheels stick out more.
do they make longer wheel hubs that make wheels stick out more so 190mm would look right with a 200mm body?

Im not positive but im pretty sure that AE TC3 Rally kit changes it from 190mm to 200mm. You could probably look at that and see which parts they use to make it wider. Just a thought

On HPI cars, they use 2 mm spacers, 3 mm off-set wheels and a smaller lock nut. That's it.

Buy wheels with +5 mm offset, if available this much (for sure you can have 3 mm offset). This is easy conversion to any car.

With a pivot ball suspension I;m sure the track is endless as you can lengthen your hubs F/R. Why do you want to lengthen your track?
