Post subject:  Wheel offsets

In another thread, Martin advised to use 3-slot front hexes and 4-slot rears when running the XRAY wheels on carpet/turf.

I've noticed that most of the team's EOS setups run 2-slot front / 3-slot rear.

Is this because the EOS wheels (Schumacher) have a greater offset than the XRAY wheels, or for some other reason?

I read that IFMAR has standardized wheel offsets for 1/10 4WD offroad; does the XRAY wheel conform to this standard (11mm rear / 2mm front measured from outside wheel face to inside hex face)?

It´s depent of what tires/wheels you use.

For example when i use front Schumacher wheels on carpet i run 2 slots.
When i use Xray wheels and ProLine Holeshot then i use minus offset because tire is much wider then wheel.

I think best way is to put your car on wheels with tires and measure maximum width of car.
Then chose offset you need. Every step of offset is 0,75mm

Thanks, this is useful information. But what overall width are you trying to achieve? 250mm? Less? Same front/rear, or different?

I think limit is 250 mm. Most of time i try to run maximum because it make car more stable.

I realise this is an old post but just wondering if 250mm is the default width for example do you run the front and rear the same widths ? and does this apply to the 2wd and 4wd.
Thanks.

Martin seems to saying to run the XB4 at 250mm all the time. I've noticed 2WD setups that run the rear a few mm narrower. I'm no expert, but I think narrowing the rear would take away some side bite, for high grip conditions like carpet. You could run a bigger rear bar to accomplish something similar but if the track isn't smooth that would make the car inconsistent.
