Default 190mm or 200mm body for my TC3

I'm new to the sport and I have a question. Can anyone tell me what the advantage of a 200mm body has over a 190mm one, besides personal taste? Will the wheels have to have an offset for them to look ok with a wider body? Bottom line, what should I use for my TC3?

Any help would be appreciated. --TIA

200mm bodies are typically for Nitro/Gas cars, 190mm for Electric.

Default 190

USe a 190mm body there's hundreds of different options so use what the tc3 was built for there not point trying to make a body fit when you can get the correct 190mm body to fit like a glove

i believe drifters use 200mm bodies then use deep dish wheels and wider hex's etc etc so it makes the car wider but if u race it illegal at most tracks so keep that in mind. depends what u wanna do

Most local clubs couldnt give a rip if you run a 200mm shell. Theres usually no advantage to running an offset, simply because most of the offset rims are made to look pretty and withstand casual play. Offset wheels usually dont hold up well to competition. However it is possible to mount foam on an offset rim and compete with it. For most people its just not worth the trouble.

Just have a talk with your local race official to see whats legal.

Thanks for the great advice guys. I noticed that there is a lot about this sport that can't be learned unless you ask. I appreciate the help.
