Default JUST PICKED UP AN OLDER BUT LIKE NEW 4 TEC AND..

... I want a new body for it but can't figure out what Proline means by their specs. My car has a wheelbase of 256mm and their bodies are all made for 190mm or 200mm TC. What does that mean? Length?? Width?? Airspace??

I'm kind of new to TC racing.

Its the width. electric cars for the most part are 190, and nitro cars 200. occasionally you can run 200 on an electric car, if your using rims that have a large offfset (mostly happens in drifting)

any 190 mm body will work

a 200mm will work but might look a little funny being really wide unless u put on wider offset wheels

Well that makes sense now but the Corvette body from my HiMoto doesn't fit the 4TEC wheel base. Just throwing that out.
