I have a question. I wnat to buy a "1968 CHEVROLET CAMARO BODY (200mm/210mm)"

I have a 190 car and now is my question. How do you get the 210mm in the rear? the ofset of the tires is max 6mm.

is the 6mm for 2 tires or eatche tire so in total 12mm on the car?

Don't worry about it. There might be a little extra room in the back but not enough you should make an effort to widen your chassis.

the rear rims are 6 mm offset from the front rims. The backspacing puts the rims less than 3 mm from the fenders and quarters on a 190 mm car. It ends up looking very nice.

Ok thanks,

so in the front 0mm offset and in the rear 6mm offset is ok.

Both rims have the same offset on the back side of rim. The rears are just wider by 5mm to the outside of rim. So the rears look deeper.

It would be cool if there were different backspacings like 1:1 rims to get a more realistic look in the wheel wells for the different chassis. This is just a part of the little kid in me that really likes to watch these cars race as much I like to race them. I know most of the cars are so close in physical width, but again I'm a car guy looking for that perfect fit.

Team Losi makes different width hex adapters for touring cars. They are listed as fitting TC3/4 and JRX-S cars, but may work for other cars. Here is a link to the parts listing on Team Losi's website (http://www.losi.com/Search/Default.a...=wheel%20hexes)

Here is an image from Losi's website -


This doesn't help with the issue of back-spacing, but might help address some fit issues on bodies such as the HPI Mustang.

Tamiya also sells 6mm, 5mm and 4mm hexes too.
I do not have the parts.

You can get rims from the drifting side of the hobby with all kinds of variable offsets and the appearance of differrent "Dishes". Some of them look killer, and even though you can get tires in the same compound as the Vintage, they wont be legal to race with. They perform very similar to the VTA tires so if you like to look cool while practicing.......Just have your legal set back on by the time you qualify or race. MHO only.

Car like Schumacher Mi3.5 will let you adjust your F/R track width by simply adding spacers. You can get to 200mm like NITRO car if you want to, no need to buy any deep hex and having not enough wheel nut thread left.

However, it is all about the looks only...I don't know why getting the VTA car wider is any better on track.

I agree with Solara. This is purely cosmetic. I can still appreciate the hard work that goes into making the whole TA package work mechanically and still have a piece of rolling artwork.

I don't care how it runs.
I want the car to look good.
I wanted to drive our stock class at the club with it.
It's only not allowed to use those tiers so i don't do it.
I drive 10,5T on 5 cel TC at our club and i wanted to drive a second class.
6 cell with a tamiya sport tuned motor.
But it isn't allowed so i drive with somting els.

There is some hope. There is an other club member that likes it to to drive with trans ams. So there is hope that there will come a class or that we may drive with them. Then i will choose to drive 5 cell with the Tamiya motor.
This is our class where beginners start before they go to the 10,5.
But i like it because there the drivers have fun and don't care when they don't win.

Need a little help.

Finishing my son's car for tomorrow, what's a good starting FDR for 27T indoor carpet.

Track is roughly 90x40/50

thanks
