The 200 mm conversion is to make the tc3 a "rally" car. It handles great at 190. 200 mm is not legal at races for electric. Also if you broke you would have to replace with the harder to find 200 mm parts. I think associated discontinued that kit so you might check it out before you try it.

or just run 200 body on your 190 set up ..local club races might not care which body but the big races wont allow it ..

i just bought 4 hpi foam tires on black rims that comes with spacers to push out your tires to fill out the 200mm body on an electric car. they are just 6 sided peices of plastic really thin that go in the rim. then the nut goes in the rim behind the spacer.
