Default 190mm/200mm question

Does this reference the wheelbase or the width of a vehicle?

I ask as I picked up a RS4 3 Evo. My lhs has a complete set of MIP shiny axles for a rs4 200mm which is the width of my 3 evo. Even though they aren't labeled as rs4 3 evos I wanted to know if they were labeled 200mm if they should fit? Complete front and rear in the clearance bin for $20 new seems like a no brainer to me

it is adjustable by running different offset wheels though. so a 190mm chassis could use a 200mm body if you ran 5mm offset wheels on each side. (though you would probably have to run just 3mm on each side, as 5 isn't a standard that i know of. goes 0mm, 3mm, 6mm, 9mm, 12mm (higher offsets usually used for drifting. )

they should fit, but the bones might be a little short though. (usually the extra 10 mm is made up with larger arms, which requires longer bones)

Your hubs will need to be extended 5mm each side, as it's from the outdrives on the diff to the wheel hub that determines the length of the axle/dogbones/cv

So if you can widen the hubs on the car, then remove the dogbones and compare them to the ones in the store, eg +5mm

Dont forget all diffs have different widths, the wheel hubs and outdrives on the diff can vary so it's not just a matter of 200mm axles.

It should fit. The only difference between the RS4 2 and the RS4 3 nitro is just the drivetrain.(shaft vs belt) Both uses the same suspension components.

However, if you're asking about the RS4 2 electric vs RS4 3 electric, that is a totally different ball game.
