Hi herman,

It run's really good.
Battles with others 90 (fiat500...) are really fun !

Very nice indeed....can you fit a normal 11mm wheels at the rear?

Perhaps with -1offset and a "dremel"...
We use narrow front and rear for our short class. With a 70trs, no need to use 11mm, on rcp with foam, GQ or Xpower. Verysoft rear/medium firm rear.

Bye

i believe that there are two ways to do this...

option one... is to use -1 wide offset rims in the rear... the only rim that i know that has a -1 wide offset is the one that comes with the reebok skyline r32 check here ---> mini-z guide (http://mini-z-guide.com/bodies.htm)

part no mz40gm (5spoke) / mz41gm (6spoke) from here ---> kyosho tire / wheel set spec sheet (http://www.kyosho.com/jpn/support/instructionmanual/mini-z/pdf/mr_tire_wheel-201405.pdf)

unfortunately though the front offset is 1.5mm and it will definitely stick out of the vitz front wheel well... so you could use the rear rim and pair it with a similar looking 5 or 6 star front narrow rim with 0 offset...

option two... i believe that atomic produced a shorter axle for the ball diff which allows you to use wide rims for mr01/015 bodies normally using 0 offset narrow rims...

might be a bit hard to find... since mr01/015 parts are harder to come by these days... i was supposed to buy one along with the atomic 90mm motor mount, a while back, but unfortunately got busy and never got around to get one...

i believe this would be a great option, since you will be able to use matching rims so long as they are 0N fronts and 0W rears...

hope this helps... :D

p.s. i think i remember trying a regular wide rim... you just might be able to get away with using it in the rear, with slight rubbing... modification to the body might solve some of the problem...

Here's a link to my vitz (http://mini-zracer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=16415&highlight=Vitz+mr015)... There are pics of different rims on it including the -1 offset skyline rims... Hope this helps... And apologize for being off topic...
