    Offset question

    If i am running some HPI vintage wheels can i get away with +3mm offset? Or +6mm?
    Or should i run 0 offset

    They have exactly the wheel I'm after for my new Proline Camaro RS cop car.

    Also anyone have experience running a stagger? 26mm front and 31mm rear?
    Does this upset the handling on the RC scale or not?

    Wider rear tires will probably increase oversteer.

    I have not had any issues running 31mm all around...
    I had thought of going with 26/31, but since it is 4wd and could use all the traction it can get I put 31 at each corner.

    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    that doesn't look too bad at all with 31's all round. Maybe i'll wait on tires until i actually have the Camaro here and then see what i have to work with in the fenders.

    3~4mm offset is stock fitment so won't require any body mods.

    On the Rally body at least, 5mm is problematic unless you run a lot of camber:

    3MM OFFSET 26MM should work fine, but you can also use the 31mm wide in the back too, just might have to narrow the rear via threading in the pillow balls and shortening the rear tie rods if you have the adjustable ones.

    Good to know, i decided to wait until the body is here. its tough to tell just how the fenders are when looking at the pics of an uncut shell.

    Looks like i should be able to run +3 with no issues at all.

    On the Camaro body you can easily go 6mm offset all around.
