Wheel Offset

Postby cnick975 » Sat Dec 22, 2012 8:53 pm

Hey guys, I was wondering what wheel offset for the front and rear wheels will give me an aggressive wide look on a 190mm body. Thanks!

Depends on the amount of camber you will use but the most important is what chassis and the hex you have , and the brand of the body , there are 190 and "190" mm ;)

Alright so I see 10mm offset and then I also see it depends on the body that I buy, which company do you guys recommend for bodies... Yokomo? Tamiya? HPI?

|O| Way to make yourself look like a nice guy.

We have a great community here...and regardless of how simple or complicated a question may be, people have the right to post and ask the question or a topic up for discussion and people will either answer it, or not answer it. That's the whole point of a forum. Next time, you might want to think before making such a jackass comment. :Ono

People like you shouldn't even be on a forum like Valentin said a forum is to help a certain group of people not criticize them for making stupid posts or inadequate ones. Next time just don't post anything at all because your comment was pointless.

Why would anyone say thanks when you answered it like a complete dick :roll: . So what if it's a "dumb question" in your opinion... some people may just be starting out with the whole RC drift scene, and have no clue how to achieve the fitment seen in some peoples pics, or even know where to start to find out how to obtain the look they are going for. Some people may feel overwhelmed and are just looking for a helping hand. No need to be a complete dick about it.

If he's providing information, what difference does it make? People accept incorrect information all the time, just because "somebody's a nice guy". Beggars can't be choosers. Go find your own results by trial and error, or put up with the answers you get.

when one learns a little more than much, one tends to develop intollerance for a newbish questions. but then being a dick about it often causes a newbie from even trying to get into the hobby because of that. it may one day cause a community to fade or slow down on growth.

others may have better answers that arent such a dick about it. we were all newbies once. if you cant control yourself from being a dick even if you did answer his query, let someone else answer (patiently/nicely).

dont act like such a hotshot. just remember, there's always someone better. haha


anyway, nothing more to add since there are good suggestions already. ^_^
