98mm Conversion kit??

I read about a 98mm conversion kit which allowed for wide offset wheels and bodies such as the McLaren F1. I can no longer find the thread, does anyone care to shed some light on thei subject?

Pn has it out now. Its adapters that make the chassis 98mm. It has longer spur gears with to match up. It also comes with the lay down crystal adapter to fit bodies better.

98mm is the length of the wheelbase not the width. So no 98 mm is the perfect fit for a lot of the nice bodies like the Mclaren, Lambo Murci, Enzo, and best of all the Pan Car...

What about super-wide offset wheels? I heard the wide rears aren't so good on the MA010.

I used the extension kit and won the NY Regional event yesterday. The kit definitely helped stability and performance since I lapped everyone in the race easily. I also had a chance to drive PN's demo car and it too was awesome with the extension kit. The MA-010 should've come as a 98mm standard but the 90, 94mm confirguration helped Kyosho to sell more of those old/narrow bodies. My RTR weight with the kit was 7Oz.

Well, congratulations! Were the AWDs put in a seperate class, or with you with the 'traditional' racers?

What body did you run? How did your lap/time compare to the other classes.

I used a modified Corvette body that accepts 98mm wheelbase. Best lap time was a hair faster than MR-02 stock. I ran with other MA-010 cars only, there were 90 and 94mm cars in the same race.

i was asking if there was a problem with width because the 98mm bodies are generally wider than 94 or 90mm and i was guessing you would need a wide offset

SaiTam,

Congrats on the win! Can you tell us any more on your setup? Motor, FET, Camber, Toe, do you use alloy parts? Thanks!
