Default 190mm to 200mm

Ok this is the third or fourth board i've asked this but here goes.

I have a Schumacher Mission Carbon and I wanna try and convert it to 200mm to run a certain body. I have heard that spacers can work, but are they destructive to the hex's in the rims or anything like that?

Any help would be appreciated

why do you want to run 200mm, that is for nitro. Where would you put the spacers? You need the contact between the hex and the rim to be 100%. Besides, that would throw the handling of your car way off. Surely the body you want to run is available in 190mm.

There's no way of doing it easily. With spacers you can add maybe 2 or 3 mm per side, but I doubt you could use 5mm spacers. You'll just run out of threads for the wheel nut.
The only sensible option would be to use 2mm offset wheels + spacers, that would get you close.
Beware, this can really screw up the handling because of the extra leverage in the steering. It's much smarter just to run another body...
