I'm confused on your response....

with the shorter rear universals (VZW0007), what is the smallest track width you can run in the rear (190mm???)

"have you tried a spool in the front" @ Revelation????
You can use 2mm offset tires with the stock universal or use 2mm spacer between the wheel and the wheel hex. With VZW007, it's the stock setup for the non-WC edition and it uses 0 offset tires. As to how narrow you can make your rear track width I do not know as I never tried to run much less than 200mm. I use one way for Revelation and it works well.

ghoppa- The WC version comes with rear universals which require 2mm offset wheels. What you need to run 0 offset wheels in the rear are the VSW007. The name is a misnomer because the axle is actually 2mm longer. I thought about just widening the rear end and using 0 offset wheels but if you have too much droop the driveshaft can pop out of the drive cup.

Here are the universals you need to run 0 offset tires.


These are the universals that come with the kit.

to make a long story short, the V One RRR WC uses a 2mm offset tire (just like the MTX3?????) (on all 4 corners)

No, the RRR WC uses 2mm offset wheels in the rear and 0 offset wheels in the front.

does that mean you have to buy tires that have a 2mm offset as well?

Bighurt, I did one about a year and a half ago for my evo. It's still solid. Otherwise I would just go with heavy diff oil or gum.

jefferlin,
did you notice that when you build your rear shocks to the size the manual says, it tells you to measure distance at bottom of alumuminum to the top of the plastic ball holder, that when you set your rear droop to 4 that when you attach the shocks it pulls the droop up???

Just like jeffreylin wrote before: To use 0 mm offset tires on the WC, either put shims between the rear wheels and the hexes or get the VSW007 drive shafts.

Not mine but it's close. You can use longer ballcup or make your shock a bit longer if that bothers you.
