Not to throw shade but if a club wants to race off the books bodies go for it. But if racers want to go to events away from the local track they should just be aware of the rules that they will need to follow. We get that occasionally at our track as we run by the rule sets in all classes. Leniency is shown to newcomers but they get advised of the rules in a friendly way.
On our walls are posted a spread sheet with basics and notes to specific locations for details.

One thing anyone can do is make a spacer out of 1/4" I.D. tubing and put the flange of the rear bearings on the inside of the bulkheads with the tubing between them to transfer loads. For a X-Ray gear diff there may be a new aftermarket hub in the future that moves the wheel inward. I am testing that now and could easily take the car into the low 180's with that. I will tell you that less than 188 isn't recommended.
I have let Dumper at CRC know that moving the bearings inward benefits the handling and made a suggestion to them for a small design change in the sliders. We will see.
I heard about moving the bearing. I have moved the right side hub closer to the gear and the diff flange closer to the bearing, but still using the 2mm wide spacer. My rear width is less that 187mm. So how narrow did he end up making the rear of the car? By the way, did you know that is my original Gen10 R/T?

I run it between 188 and 194 depending!! Like I said I can go less with the gear diff or spool but handling starts to get shakey.
My car is the Gen-X R/T but here is one better. We have a oval class that requires a WGT chassis and McCallister Indy body. I use the original Gen-X for that class. I bought that kit on my return from a house building hiatus in 2008. That is still a competitive car and still available from CRC.
I am guessing that we will see a new kit soon. The adjustable rear roll center from the new 1/12 scale kit will make its way there. Probably into the F1 also.

The center pivot conversion also fits the current F1 car.

Same Hobbywing motor that they used 2 years ago. Not a bad motor when geared right.

What is the benefit of the new part/design? I see other manufacturer are using similar setup.
