he is probably talking about the arms in the rear that traxxas makes to give you about a half inch longer wheel base. but if you want a wider stance you have two options

longer wheel base
traxxas arms
and if you can find them qoncept hub carriers(1/2 longer wheel base)

wider stance
buy adapters (cheaper)
or
kershaw designs sells some extenders that you could use with the existing shafts but remember you are going to need also longer tie rods and push rods which he also sells.

hope this helps.

iirc, the stock Summit arms are longer than the revo arms. The geode wheels are also 1/2" offset.

If you're looking for a relatively "stock" way of getting there...
