Anyone know what the wheel offsets for the Super Mercedes C9 are? one of the guys wants to use the PN Wheels and need to know what offset would work. Thanks.

oh, I need the offsets for a MR-02/03. :)

Pretty sure the Sauber is the same as the LM Porsche, which I think is +2.7F and +3R, but I can check the Kyosho sheet when I get home to confirm.

I would recommend rounding down to the nearest PN offsets because the stock offsets usually leave too much wheel exposed.

any issue running the PN wheels on the LM bodies? I know the fronts are typically smaller.

I know that the LM bodies have different wheel sizes than the Racer bodies, I'm also not sure if he is using it on his MR-03 or if he got the MR-03 with it.

I have 2 Sauber bodies, but haven't run them yet. Generally, you can use Kyosho LM specifc tires or regular tires in the rear on 20mm rims. In the front, you can run LM tires on LM wheels or regular tires on 20mm rims.

you should use my wheels!! the fronts with normal tires is the same overall diameter as the LM wheels with LM tires.

yes it will take 2.7 and 3 off set front and back repectively but the +3 rears on this body is with an aftermarket or stock nonLM motor mount. If the person plans to run the stock LM motor mount then the off set will be +2.7 front and +1 in the rear.

I wonder why you can't you use LM Wheels and tires.... especially if the cars you're racing with come with them

I sort of feel the same about using them. I made the investment in buying all the Kyosho tires so I could tune the grip. I like the look of the LM bodies with there wheels too....
Unfortunately not a lot of racers in my neck of the woods use 102mm bodies. I am in the minority.
I am happy that this year the LM bodies are now legal. I dont know how much of an advantage the LM tires/wheels give. I guess PN doesnt make or sell aftermarket LM wheels/tires and it is there racing series....
The ultimate purpose for PN is to sell more PN parts.....:cool:
I will slap some PN delrin wheels and PN tires on mine..........:D
